Switzerland Introduces Support and Flexible Regulations for Fintech

The Federal Council of Switzerland is seeking to make the regulatory framework more flexible for fintech companies; they have instructed the Federal Department of Finance to devise a policy statement setting such a direction; recommendations to be considered include: (a) setting a maximum of 60 days for holding money in a settlement account, which will make settlements better aligned with crowdfunding project funding deadlines, (b) creating of an innovation sandbox in which a platform can accept funds up to CHF 1 million, and (c) establishing a new fintech license, with fewer restrictions than on traditional banks.  Source
