Large financial groups and conglomerates are a permanent fixture in the financial landscape and require regulatory attention. By addressing the motives and risks behind conglomerate structures, looking into international developments, which led to the current legal regime and policy proposals, and by comprehensively reviewing the main aspects of the prudential supervision of financial and insurance groups and conglomerates in Switzerland, this doctoral thesis undoubtedly fills a gap in Swiss financial law literature. The thesis also offers a practical and critical overview of the main priorities, challenges, and issues that must be kept in mind for future policy debates. Legal professionals and policymakers interested in the central issue of financial market supervision and control will definitely benefit from this thorough study.
