In Switzerland, the Financial Markets Infrastructure Act (FMIA), also known as “FinfraG”, came into force in early 2016. It will align the derivatives trading regulation with the international standards, and address key changes in the infrastructures of the financial markets, such as trading platforms and central clearing counterparties. Part of FinfraG contained a requirement for firms with their registered office in Switzerland to report their derivatives trades to a trade repository.
