Investment Banking in Switzerland - average working hours?

I would like to ask someone who are working in Investment Banking in Switzerland (German part).

I know that in New York (or London) some employees in investment banks have extremely long working hours? Sometimes they work 14-16 hours everyday and even weekends. I am not surprised about this work style in US, peoplei n US live to work, but I know that people in Europe work to live and value higher their leisure time.

Can anyone who are working in investment banking in Switzerland give me info, how long actually are working hours in IB in Switzerland ?
Thank you very much.

Officialy 42 hrs, but are not unusual 10-12 hrs per day sometimes, like the during the triple witching or in other occasions. Btw, here people take care of having a good work-life balance, are not crazy like in US.

Cheers
Nic
