Re: What to do with 100k CHF?

Low risk: NEVER put (or borrow) it in any vehicle in a different currency than yours. Ask the Hungarians (and Poles to some extend) why
taking long-term debt (mortgages) in a foreign currency is a vastly different story than investing in foreign currency. In case of Hungary, if they all had invested in CHF before, the whole country would be pretty rich by now

TelCos (Swisscom - or Sunrise), Sunrise currently is at 72 CHF and paid 4.20 CHF last year. If you can afford to stick with them 20 years, and it stays the same, you'll have more than doubled your investment. Plus you ought to re-invest the dividend at some time, making it a steady 5%+ growth
A dividend strategy generally doesn't work in CH. The gains are fairly small compared to the volatility of the papers, plus get they double taxed (2x15%) until declared (when they drop to 15%) as FMF wrote. Capital gains are tax free.
