The Basic Information Sheet – No surprises in the final implementing ordinances, but some relevant amendments

On 1 January 2020 the new Swiss Financial Services Act (FinSA) and its implementing ordinance, the Financial Services Ordinance (FinSO), will come into effect. The Swiss Federal Council announced its decision on the entering into force of the new financial services regulation and the final text of the implementing ordinances on 6 November 2019. There are no big surprises in the final ordinances regarding the newly introduced basic information sheet (Basisinformationsblatt). However, a number of amendments were made based on responses in the consultation process of the draft ordinances.
