SRO services

Who is it for

All businesses that fall within the scope of the Swiss Anti-Money Laundering Act (AML) are required to implement know-your-customer (KYC), ongoing monitoring, reporting and freezing procedures. Additionally – if they are not already supervised by FINMA – they need to become a member of a Swiss Self-Regulatory Organization (SRO).

What we provide you with
Regulatory evaluation of your Business model

First, you need to know whether your business is subject to the AML or not. In order to answer that question, we define the regulatory possibilities of your business model in a collaborative two-hour workshop. Our regulatory experts will ask the right questions, place your plans in context with the full regulatory landscape, and conclude with actionable advice and options for your next steps.

Some background information: AML regulation generally applies if your activities include assisting in transferring assets for, or holding assets of, clients or third parties. Especially FinTech and Blockchain business models with connections to e.g. payment instruments, payment systems, lending activities or individual portfolio management are typically subject to the AML and potentially other financial market laws.

SRO membership application

Once we’ve confirmed your regulatory status, you’ll need to obtain an SRO membership before you’re allowed to start engaging in your business activities.

We will take care of the entire application process for you (see the section below for more details). We have streamlined the process and maintained excellent relationships with the SROs. Thus, you can expect to obtain membership in around 2 to 4 months.

If required, our experts are also available to advise you in designing your AML policy and procedures, speak to software vendors and map regulatory compliance to economic efficiency.
