Re: Saving and Investing in Switzerland

View Post

Switzerland is basically a paradise for banks where customers have lots of money and they can charge nice fees and give low or negative returns.
This x10!!

Do yourself a favour and spend a cpl of hours reading about investing in some basic investment products like index ETFs, which you can dollar (or chf) cost average into. Over time your returns will (almost certainly) far beat inflation (which they're not doing now) and you won't be stuck paying high fees for low/no service from swiss banks.

Then don't buy ETFs from swiss banks so you can avoid their extortionate fees. Real example, give or take:
10kCHF ETF purchase at UBS = c100chf
10kCHF ETF purchase at interactive brokers = <5chf
