Swiss Fintech Innovation is an initiative founded in March 2016 to foster innovation in the Swiss financial industry (read more about our Articles of Association DE / Articles of Association EN / Antitrust Guideline DE). Our members are Swiss Banks and Insurance Companies – we are convinced that members of all sizes should be part of an innovation network and ecosystem. We collaborate with all relevant partners to get the best out of specific topics and shared interest for everybody.

See below how our Organisation works and who we partner with.
