Can we deduct FinSA affiliation fees from other Terraxis services?

Yes. We encourage you to use the power of mediation to resolve your potential business disputes. To do this, we automatically deduct the FinSA affiliation fees from any commercial mediation.

Does Terraxis charge termination fees and impose a cancellation period?

We do not charge cancellation fees. The 2024 affiliation will automatically end at the end of the validity period (31 December 2024). The 2025 affiliation will be offered to our affiliates in 2024 and will remain at their sole decision.

There is no automatic renewal and our affiliates are not required to renew their membership if they no longer wish to or need it.

Are there any additional fees for first year registration?

No, we do not charge such fees. There are no registration fees or processing fees to pay and you only pay the affiliation price mentioned in #02 above which includes all costs associated with your affiliation.

Is the cost the same regardless of the number of advisors within the same financial service provider?

Yes, the price is per entity/company and not per number of advisors (art. 3 & 29 FinSA).

How long will a membership made today be valid?

Will Terraxis inform the Swiss authorities of our affiliation?

Yes, Terraxis will inform directly the Federal Departement of Finance (FDF) of your entity's affiliation in a separate process where you do not need to intervene. This is done on an annual basis according to FinSA art. 86 and is part of the duties of Terraxis within the meaning of the FinSA.

Can we mandate Terraxis for FinSA mediation even though we are affiliated with another mediation body?
