Opening a Swiss Bank Account

Hi all,

First post. I hope this is okay. I found the forum in Google seprs and it looks very useful

I am looking to deposit high 6 figures/7 figures (euros) into a Swiss bank account.

This will be a personal account and I am looking for security and diversification of jurisdiction. Privacy isn't a huge issue for me. I've nothing to hide.

Can anyone tell me reputable banks fit the criteria:

I'm an EU Residents
Non Swiss resident
Need a personal accounts
Need multi currency
Dont need an introducer.
500-1m in monies.

Any advice appreciated.
Thanks

Re: Opening a Swiss Bank Account

Which EU country? I was told that French/German can have an account without being in the country vs say UK.

Otherwise any big Swiss bank has accounts with different currencies etc. I think you need more than 1 million to start to get to the special banks level.

All Swiss Banks are reputable and there is a limited deposit protection scheme.
Some banks may, however, be more solvent than others. Here is anyway a list from FINMA, the bank overseer. Look for the category "Large Banks", "Cantonal Banks" or "Regional Banks and Savings Banks" : https://www.google.ch/url?sa=t&rct=j...,d.bGg&cad=rja

I'm not sure you would be able to open an account if you have no tie to the country. You would need to have a ring around. I know I struggled before I arrived, (UK passport holder).

All depends how much you deposit.

As a non swiss resident it was over 100000usd last time I checked.

Re: Opening a Swiss Bank Account

To clarify. I work in Malta. Have an address, company and also have a home address in the UK where my parents live and where my UK bank accounts are attached.

What is the best way to go about finding an ideal Swiss bank?
Sorry, I'm quite new to this.

@Carlos_R - Sure. Can you PM me your passport, credit card details and list of greatest fears?
