Re: New to Switzerland and investing - help needed!

View Post

I recently moved to Switzerland and would like to invest my savings.

I'm looking to invest into a managed portfolio - I'm not interested in picking out stocks directly by myself.

I'm 31 and I'd like to invest on a 5+ year horizon. I don't have plans to buy property anytime soon.

To complicate matters further, I have a chunk of cash saved up in EUR and a bit in GBP. Given the strength of the CHF, I don't think it's a great idea to convert these at the moment.

Can anyone recommend any suitable investment vehicles that would cater to my requirements, especially maintaining a portion of my investment in EUR and GBP? From what I gather, Swiss banks charge ridiculous fees. Any cheaper online platforms that I should consider?

Interactive Brokers. You can send your EUR and GBP cash to Interactive Brokers very easily.
I agree, don't convert to CHF plus more investment opportunities in USD markers.
