Anti-Money Laundering Act (AMLA) & customer protection.

The Swiss Federal Act on Combating Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism in the Financial Sector (AMLA) has been in force since 1 April 1998. It defines specific due diligence obligations for financial intermediaries, as they are known, which serve to combat money laundering effectively.
