  • GrenzĂĽberschreitende Finanzdienstleistungen

    Der Finanzbereich ist auch in der Schweiz einer der am stärksten regulierten Wirtschaftzweige. Sich darin zurechtzufinden ist nicht immer einfach. Nachfolgende Ausführungen sollen dazu einen Einstieg vermitteln. Sie zeigen, dass die Schweiz im Gegensatz zum Ausland und abgesehen vom Bereich der kollektiven Kapitalanlagen und der Versicherungsprodukte, was die Zulässigkeit von grenzüberschreitend angebotenen Finanzdienstleistungen anbelangt, ein sehr liberales Regime kennt.
