SWISS FINANCE LAW AND INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS

Update


Peter Nobel

Stämpfli Publishers Ltd., Berne, 2005

Update of January 2005

Forward

Finance law is in a constant state of flux and Swiss Finance Law, which continues to be a subject of interest and concern to more and more people, has been rapidly developing to accommodate international changes in the field. As a service to the reader, I have thus decided to present an update of "Swiss Finance Law and International Standards" on the Internet. This update provides a selection of the more important and relevant Swiss and International law developments in finance market law since the 2002 publication. The updated paragraphs are set forth below with lettered paragraphs corresponding to those in the individual chapters (e.g., § 6 N 24a, §6 N 24b etc.); when following from the end of a chapter, new paragraphs are numbered.

Among the new developments included herein are the following:

  • The FSSA (Financial System Stability Assessment) Report, published in Spring 2002 (§3 N 105a et seq.);

  • The WTO´s Fifth Ministerial Conference held in Cancún, 10 to 14 September 2003. (§ 4 N 62b et seq.);

  • The July 2004 report and first draft for a Federal Act on Dormant Assets to the Federal Finance Department (§ 5 N 56a);

  • The June 2004, European Commission´s tenth and final progress report (completing almost all legislative measures in the FSAP) (§6 N 26a);

  • The new EU Directive 2004/39/EC on Markets in Financial Instruments, (§ 6 N 92a);

  • The recently enacted (1 May 2004) Federal Act on the Swiss National Bank (NBA) (§ 8 N 60a);

  • The July 2003 Zimmerli Commission (first) report on an integrated financial market regulator, together with the draft for a Federal Law on Financial Market Supervision (FINMAG) (§ 9 118b);

  • The November 2002 draft and report of the Swiss Federal Council concerning revision of the banking law applicable to bankruptcy and restructuring of banks as well as to depositor protection and a discussion of the new BankA provisions (with parliamentary approval of 3 October 2002;entry into force on 1 July 2004) (§ 10 N 202a);

  • New provisions on the supervision of systems for clearing and settlement into the new National Bank Act of 3 October 2003 and the subsequent amendments to the BankA and the SESTA (§ 12 N 68a); the ongoing consolidation in the field of stock exchanges (chapter 12 N 39b, 41a), clearing and settlement organizations (§ 12 N 64a);

  • The new national (§ 13 N 29a and N 34a) and international (§ 13 N 3a, 27a and 28a) directives, standards and reports in the area of corporate governance;

  • The new Federal Act on Merger, De-merger, Transformation and Transfer of Assets, entry into force on 1 July 2004 (§ 13 N 221a);

  • The November 2003 pre-draft for a revised fund legislation (revision of the Federal Act on Investment Funds IFA) extending the Act´s scope (§ 14 N 88 et seq.);

  • Art. 100quater paras 1 and 2 of the Swiss Penal Code, effective October 2003,increasing the potential for corporate liability in criminal matters (§ 15 N 111a).
