MWC Group’s various business units are subject to these provisions.

FinSA’a content is closely based on the MiFiD II reforms in the EU.

FINMA is Switzerland’s independent financial-markets regulator. Its mandate is to supervise banks, insurance companies, exchanges, securities dealers, collective investment schemes, and their asset managers and fund management companies. It also regulates distributors and insurance intermediaries. It is charged with protecting creditors, investors, and policyholders.

As a registered ‘Insurance intermediary’ with FINMA, MWC Group can operate without being tied to any insurance company. This facilitates our independent ability to identify and recommend the best products available in the market through direct terms of business with providers.
