Country General Information

Banking
Swiss banks are known to be some of the best, most reliable and stable financial institutions in the world. Being one of the main industries in Switzerland since its foundation, Swiss banks have a reputation for providing their clients with unmatched expertise and banking quality.
History
The Swiss mercenaries brought home wealth created via their contracts that helped begin Swiss banking in the eighteenth century, along with the riches of various merchants. Wegelin & Co. was established in 1741 and was the oldest bank in Switzerland until it restructured into a new bank in 2013. Hentsch & Cie and Lombard Odier are some of the oldest banks in Switzerland, founded in 1796 in Geneva, with The Pictet Group established in 1805 as a merchant bank. About one-third of all worldwide funds held outside their country of origin, commonly referred to as “offshore” funds, are kept in Switzerland.
