Statement from the SBA regarding the decision of the Swiss Federal Council to define parameters for the cooperation of banks in Switzerland with the USA

Basel, 3. July 2013

  • The SBA welcomes the fact that the Swiss Federal Council has assumed its responsibility by defining the parameters for the cooperation between banks in Switzerland and the United States of America. The SBA expects that this will finally create legal certainty so that the banks in Switzerland can make use of the US’ unilateral programme.
