The regulatory environment – a growth area

Since 2008 we have seen dramatic growth in the regulatory requirements facing corporations. Starting with Sarbanes-Oxley in the US, national and international regulations worldwide have been tightened or introduced across all industries, and in the financial services industry across a wide range of products. This development owes its existence to almost catastrophic misdeeds, mismanagement and manipulation in the financial system, and aims to change the way businesses operate.

Integration der anderen Art

Normalerweise denken wir bei Integration ja an Menschen, die sich in einer neuen Umgebung zurechtfinden wollen oder müssen. Aber was ist eigentlich mit Tieren? Die machen nicht einfach alles mit, kann ich euch sagen. Durch den Umzug meines Partners zu mir in die Schweiz ergab sich zu all den Behördengängen eine zusätzliche Herausforderung: Mia, die fränkische Katze meines Partners, sollte natürlich mit in die Schweiz ziehen.

Diction Christmas party 2018

Our Christmas party took place on 19 January 2018 at the Hundertwasser Market Hall in Staad, giving everyone here at Diction the chance to ring in the new year – somewhat belatedly, in time-honoured fashion. This year’s event was very much in the vein of previous Diction parties, and once the secret Santa gifts had been exchanged and copious amounts of food and drink had been consumed, the only thing left to do was dance the night away. Of course, we also made a collective donation to a very valuable local cause – another important tradition at the Diction Christmas party. Click on the images below for a few snapshots of the event:

Wie Sie die neue Geldwäschereiverordnung (auch sprachlich) umsetzen

Die Financial Action Task Force (FATF) hat der Schweiz in ihrer vierten Länderprüfung zur Bekämpfung von Geldwäscherei und Terrorismusfinanzierung schlechte Noten erteilt. Die Schweiz musste noch einmal über die Bücher, und die Eidgenössische Finanzmarktaufsicht (FINMA) hat in der Folge ihre Geldwäschereiverordnung (GwV-FINMA) revidiert. Die revidierte Verordnung soll 2019 in Kraft treten. Wie müssen Sie als Finanzintermediär nun vorgehen?

The next round of glühwein is on Diction!

Over the past few weeks, we have spent some wonderful evenings with clients and friends at the Christmas markets in Zurich and St. Gallen. Enjoying the piping-hot glühwein (served in our very own Diction mugs) and great company was the perfect way to wind down after a hard day’s work – even if the weather (icy cold in Zurich and sleet and rain in St. Gallen) wasn’t exactly ideal. Check out the photos from the events:
