FINMA Revisits Corporate Governance Guidelines for Banks

On 1 November 2016, the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority FINMA (FINMA) announced its publication of a new circular relating to the supervisory requirements for banks, specifically with regards to corporate governance, internal control systems and risk management. At the same time, FINMA published amendments to existing circulars in relation to remuneration schemes and operational risks for institutions. These combined new and modified requirements incorporate the latest international corporate governance standards as well as post-financial crisis risk management conclusions.
