About FinTech Werkstatt

FinTech Werkstatt is specialised and supports you in applying for a Swiss FinTech license application. Structure your organisation to meet Swiss regulatory requirements. We can help you to obtain a “Sand-Box” environment initially and get admitted as a member of a Self Regulatory Organisation (SRO) (Art. 6 Abs. 2 und 3 BankV).

FinTech Werkstatt will guide you through the audit process with the regulatory auditor and FINMA. We can define an ICS (Internal Control System) with a Risk and Compliance structure matching your business profile. Besides, it profits from the simplified requirements for FinTech Start-Ups at the same time.

Common questions in the FinTech application process

  • How to implement and supervise the anti-money laundering (AML) law, the ordinance and other requirements?
  • By what method do you ensure the required segregation of client monies?
  • How you organise your company will be decisive on whether you will have a restricted or ordinary audit in the future.

We can help and support you with all these issues and many more!
