Anyone who works commercially as an asset manager requires a licence from the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority FINMA and must meet a number of financial, personnel and organisational requirements.

FINMA only grants such licences if the legal requirements according to the Financial Institutions Act, the Ordinance on Financial Institutions and the Ordinance on Financial Institutions-FINMA have been met in full.

After a licence has been granted by FINMA, the approved asset managers are checked by a supervisory organisation to ensure continuous compliance with the licensing requirements and rules of conduct.

In the case of Helvetic Trust AG, this supervisory organisation is the Schweizerische Aktiengesellschaft für Aufsicht (Swiss Corporation for Supervision, AOOS).
