AMLA Commentary, 3rd edition
Swiss Anti-Money Laundering Act and other laws

Switzerland is known as a financial services center and is attractive for foreign capital. The purpose of the Swiss Anti-Money Laundering Act (AMLA) is to fight money laundering and terrorist financing. It should deter that assets from criminal sources or qualified tax offences are being legalised in Switzerland. Additionally the AMLA contains binding due diligence obligations for all participants in the financial sector.

Renowend practising experts comment the manifold rules in the area of due diligence and offer a great number of practical hints and suggestions as an indispensable tool for the daily work in the financial industry. Besides the AMLA, the Agreement on the Swiss banks’ code of conduct with regard to the exercise of due diligence (CDB 16) and a select number comments are made on the Money Laundering Ordinance (MLO) and the Money Laundering Ordinance FINMA (MLO-FINMA). Additional domestic and international rules and guidelines are attached.
