The Federal Council has called on the financial associations to further develop their self-regulations with regard to greenwashing. AMAS welcomes this approach and renews its position on greenwashing.
The Swiss electorate will vote on the draft Climate Protection Act, which arose from the withdrawn Glacier Initiative. The new Act would place some of the burden on the Swiss asset management industry. AMAS is in favor of this in principle.
The Asset Management Association Switzerland (AMAS) strives to promote favorable conditions for the Swiss capital market – including taxation. It therefore supports the campaign in favor of the withholding tax reform.

In line with the Federal Council’s strategy for the financial center, the Asset Management Association Switzerland (AMAS) has set itself the aim of establishing Switzerland as a leading hub for sustainable asset management and making financial flows climate compatible.
