I was forced to sell all my securities a few years ago, as I was told by my bank it was illegal. I contacted the broker thru the bank they used and, while I cant remember all the details he gave me a long conversation how this was true. The bank quite a bit of my holdings at the time, but it was a big hassle as I had to transfer them from my brokerage account in Switzerland to the states.

Nothing illegal just your bank no longer wanted to act for you.

You will notice Swiss people often claim things to be illegal, several forum members come to mind
