 New STSA Working Paper on the Financial Market Infrastructure Act (FMIA / FinfraG / LIMF)

STSA is issuing a new Working Paper on the new rules applicable to derivatives trading in Switzerland.

Geneva, 17 June 2016 -The entry into force of the FMIA and related Ordinance (FMIO) on January 1st 2016 was an important milestone in the regulation and supervision of OTC derivatives in Switzerland. It marked the beginning of an ambitious regulatory regime that will substantially change current commodity market practices.

STSA has actively participated in the development of the new legal and regulatory framework, ensuring that the regulation purposes would be articulated with the interests of the Swiss commodity trading industry.

Nevertheless, its implementation across the commodity trading sector will be a major exercise. STSA is aware of the scale of the challenges facing the industry and hopes that the FMIA Working Paper will help companies better prepare for the upcoming implementation phase.
