About us

SACO was founded on December 4, 1998 for the purpose of exchanging information, opinions and experiences as well as for the purpose of networking. SACO is not an organization with a code of conduct for compliance or compliance officers. Only persons being compliance officers or performing compliance tasks in a financial institution in Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein are eligible for membership.

Activities

The „Swiss Compliance Officers Meeting“ (SCOM), which generally takes place twice a year, is geared towards the members of SACO and special guests. The purpose of this conference is to convey information from the field of compliance and related areas. External parties may be invited.

Meetings of SACO members in small circles (“Baskets”) are used as a platform for discussions, exchange of experiences and comparisons. Foremost topics of discussion are compliance issues related to everyday aspects of compliance. Four to six of these meetings are taking place each year.

Conferences on special compliance subjects and related areas are held for SACO members and invited experts on an irregular basis.

Seminars and workshops are organized to pool knowledge. Further educational events are taking place on demand.
