Low cost Investment Funds in Switzerland

Hi, I'm looking to invest some money and am looking for a bank/broker that offers low fee equity investment funds, specifically index trackers for the big US and European markets (funds denominated in CHF would be a bonus). Does such a thing exist in Switzerland?

In the US I'd just open a Vanguard account but in Switzerland I can't find anything like that. Credit Suisse who I have my current account with charge an initial fee of 1.5-2.0% for all their funds and only offer actively managed funds with very high annual management charges. Swissquote who I also use have a choice of 1000s of funds but no low cost index trackers for the S&P etc.

I can't imagine I'm the first expat to run into this problem so hopefully somebody out there can give me an idea of where to look

Thanks!
