Re: Low cost Investment Funds in Switzerland

For example if I want to track a broad index of European stocks the iShares MSCI Europe UCITS (Acc) ETF is traded in CHF on the Swiss market so I can invest without any FX exchange cost (obviously I still have the FX exposure of the underlying stocks). The expense ratio is 0.35%, all the dividends are reinvested so there's zero tax to pay and Swissquote only take 9CHF. If it wasn't for the 60CHF-200CHF annual custody fees it would start to look like a good deal!
So for the long term investor using ETFs and balancing the portfolio by adding more cash, the custody fee may be more the issue.
