BIS Innovation Hub Centre - Switzerland

The BIS Innovation Hub Centre in Switzerland was established in 2019. Its current project focus areas are CBDC, suptech and regtech.

Our centre

Switzerland combines its traditional strengths of stability, security and trust with an openness to innovation. It was among the first countries to draft legal provisions on the use of distributed ledger technology, and has simplified the approval process for fintech startups.

The Innovation Hub Swiss Centre, with offices in Basel and Zurich, is embedded in this dynamic and versatile ecosystem via its close partnership with the Swiss National Bank as well as collaboration with regulatory agencies, industry associations, private sector firms and market infrastructure providers.
