Swiss Banking Ombudsman
The FinSA provides that clients of financial services providers are classified into the following categories: i) retail clients, ii) professional clients and iii) institutional clients.
To each category a different level of investor protection is assigned with respect to, for example, information obligations, suitability and appropriateness obligations, as well as documentation and liability obligations.
High-net-worth retail clients can declare that they wish to be classified as professional clients. If you are interested in applying for this change of classification, please contact your relationship manager who will discuss the requirements with you.
