Since 2009, following its move from the SFBC to FINMA, Daniel Zuberbühler has been jointly responsible for the strategic alignment and development of financial market supervision in his capacity as Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors. In addition to this role, however, he also carried out a number of different international activities.
