Re: Swiss Mortgage Margin Calls

Not experienced it - and you have to remember it is unlikely. HOWEVER if there was a property crash in Switzerland the banks have the option to make a margin call against you.
Well, I heard it happened before in the 90s, and I think if it was going to happen it would be when IRs rise again in the next few years. IRs have been low for a while which may have led to some people getting overstretched (a Swiss-subprime crisis in the making?).
