Press Release

PostFinance joins the Swiss Bankers Association

PostFinance is now a member of the Swiss Bankers Association (SBA). The SBA’s Board of Directors approved the financial service provider’s membership request during its meeting on 19 May 2016. By joining the SBA, PostFinance is now also affiliated with the Swiss Banking Ombudsman institution. The Swiss Bankers Association was founded as a trade association in Basel in 1912 and today has more than 300 member institutes. PostFinance is amongst the leading Swiss banks, received its banking licence in June 2013 and is regulated by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA).

Representing the interests of the Swiss financial center

The SBA is the leading professional organization of the Swiss financial center. Its main purpose is to maintain and promote the best possible framework conditions for the Swiss financial center both at home and abroad. It represents the interests of all banking groups in dealings with policies, the authorities and the public in Switzerland and abroad.

PostFinance joined the SBA because it is convinced that, in an extremely challenging economic, political and regulatory environment, joint representation of interests for Swiss banks is in the best interests of the entire Swiss financial center. This also gives PostFinance the opportunity to represent its customers’ interests in the various SBA working groups.

Change of Ombudsman conciliation office

By joining the Swiss Bankers’ Association, PostFinance will be affiliated with the Swiss Banking Ombudsman institution. This means that from 1 June 2016, customers will be able to contact the following office if they have any queries:
