Mutual understanding SWIPRA is convinced that a corporate governance that is advantageous for all stakeholders can only be achieved through a better mutual understanding between investors and issuers. Following this spirit, SWIPRA fosters the dialogue between the different groups of market participants and founded the SWIPRA Think Tank, consisting of the Panel of Experts and the Panel of Investors, which brings together leading personalities from the investor and the issuer community to discuss current developments in the market and advance the general understanding of the Swiss corporate governance framework.

Differentiated opinion Discussions and analyses on current developments in corporate governance in Switzerland and around the world are intended to create a common basis for a general understanding of corporate governance in Switzerland. The insights gained are brought together with current academic research in the field of corporate governance and are introduced into the public discussion through position papers, opinions, studies, surveys and newsletters.
