FINMA’s roundtable on Blockchain

T&CO attended FINMA’s roundtable on Blockchain which took place in Bern on May 10th 2017 before a sell-out crowd. FINMA’s staff and expert speakers specially selected for the occasion were present. During this session, various topics were discussed among which  :

1. FINMA’s policy regarding Blockchain’s apps, more specifically in connection with cryptocurrency;
2. Fintech-Desk: your FinTech business model under FINMA’s scrutiny;
3. Blockchain, an opportunity for Switzerland’s financial marketplace;
4. Blockchain – from experimentation to production;
5. Blockchain and financial markets supervision.

This roundtable was an opportunity to gain insights into the way FINMA deals with an application filed by a FinTech based business model. With all these useful clarifications, T&CO’s financial markets team would be delighted to help you out to get through the process of filing an application and obtaining an authorisation for a FinTech based business model.
