On 15 June 2018 Parliament adopted the Financial Services Act (FinSA) and the Financial Institutions Act (FinIA). The FinSA contains code of conduct provisions with which financial services providers must comply vis-à-vis their clients.

The FinIA essentially harmonises the authorisation rules for financial service providers. Both laws are expected to come into force with the implementing ordinances on 1 January 2020.
