Monetix Accepted as VQF Member
Zurich, Switzerland Feb 15, 2021 – Zurich headquartered company Monetix GmbH is now a member of the Swiss Financial Services Standards Association (VQF). VQF is the largest cross-industry Self- regulatory Organization (SRO) officially recognised by the Federal Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) with the longest history in Switzerland.
