Re: Low cost Investment Funds in Switzerland

Investing, the longer you invest the more you spend in fees, it's about 100 transactions.
Swiss brokers are also a pain when it comes to dividends, upto 4 statements per stock per year, all need to be sent to the tax office, Print out of all dividends & tax deductions on the same page for US broker. Swiss withholding tax is 30% v 15% if held in CH. Lots of extra work.....
Well first of all US dollar holdings would only amount to one or possibly two positions in my portfolio, if I where to use a US broker all would be in dollars. Second I only trade perhaps 6 times per year and then I buy accumulators so there is no dividend issue.

I certainly would not go using a US broker in this case.
