ICT Fintech


The Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) has established a FinTech Desk to assist promoters of “Initial Coin Offerings”, resulting in a boom of ICOs, also thanks to generous incentive schemes.

FINMA also published a guidance letter about ICOS in which it emphasised the importance of an individual review of each business case in relation to the regulatory impact. It is therefore prudent for fintech start-ups to seek clearance from the regulator before launching their project on the market.

Metrika has embraced the blockchain revolution and is able to offer a personalized assistance service to entrepreneurs interested in starting or developing a business in the FinTech sector.

In particular, the company has developed its expertise in relation to ICOs. It is able to support its customers and / or their consultants in the identification of the legal structure most appropriate to the case, in the analysis of the overall tax impact on the natural and legal persons involved, taking care, depending on the type of distribution token, the drafting of the white paper or the prospectus.


Metrika can in particular dialogue with FINMA’s FinTech Desk in order to clarify the existence and the extension of the contact points between the single ICO and the current law regarding financial markets, as well as, in more general terms, the numerous issues of a juridical nature raised by the ICOs. Metrika is also able to interface with the Tax Authorities with the purpose of agreeing an efficient tax ruling.

After ICO, our firm can continue to provide assistance, taking care of the recurring activities, such as accounting and fiduciary management of the various entities in the structure, taking care of the compliance and reporting costs, maintaining relations with investors.
Additional ICT services that Metrika can provide are infrastructure support, hosting on proprietary private cloud, ICT security (including customized packages).
