13 June 2017: “Proposals for a Roadmap towards a Sustainable Financial System in Switzerland” was published by the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) with experts from the financial sector, academic institutions, non-governmental organizations and federal authorities in June 2016 at the SSF Members’ Assembly. The aim of the publication was to spark the discussion and learning process on how the financial system in Switzerland can become more sustainable. One year after the publication, SSF set out to collect opinions on recent developments of the Swiss Financial System and the progress made in the five core areas of the “proposals”: asset and wealth management, institutional investors, credit business, capital markets, research and education. For this purpose, SSF invited its network to share their opinions on the developments regarding the implementation of the proposed measures through a short survey consisting of eight questions. A total of 34 individuals from the SSF network took part in the survey. In the following sections, we review the results.
