Political and financial stability
The rigorous management of its public finances and its political stability mean that Switzerland has been a key country for investors and a hub of international finance for generations.
As an independent and neutral country, Switzerland has created a society that is politically, economically and legally stable. It is characterized by healthy government finances, a very low unemployment rate (3.6% in February 2017) and an environment that ensures a very high degree of legal certainty.
This stability provides the foundation for the Swiss banking system as we know it today. An industry that continues to grow steadily, safely sheltered from the storms shaking today’s world.
