FINMA presents report on the financial market crisis

The “Financial market crisis and financial market supervision” that was published the day before yesterday by FINMA provides a comprehensive analysis of the financial market crisis and the ensuing decisions and actions taken by the Swiss Federal Banking Commission (SFBC). None of those involved recognised in time the origins of the crisis or the full extent of the dangers it posed. Furthermore, the analysis reveals certain weaknesses and a partial lack of effectiveness in banking supervision. The report concludes, however, that the SFBC responded rapidly and decisively, and that fundamental decisions for stabilising the financial centre were made in a targeted and timely manner. The SFBC quickly learned its lessons from the crisis and implemented remedial actions.
