Job Opportunities / Networking within Banking Industry

Hi everyone,

I relocated to Zurich from the US earlier in the year since my wife got a job here. Unfortunately, we have the L permit and I have been looking for a job within the Banking industry without any success.

I want to reach out to the members in this forum to see if anyone has any insight on finding jobs within the Banking industry in Zurich or neighboring areas on L permit.

My background is in securitization, structured finance, credit, and lending and I have worked in New York my entire career. Are there any members in this forum with banking background? Also, open to networking with banking and asset management professionals.

Appreciate any help or insights.

Thanks,
Newbie in Zurich and this forum

I suggest you try UBS and Credit Suisse, maybe PostFinance. I think they'd be the only ones willing to hire Americans at the moment. FATCA made Americans in general pretty unpopular in the banking industry I'm afraid and the L permit isn't likely to help.

Having worked here in the finance sector since over 20 years, you should potentially also prepare yourself for going through your career, if based from here, with a target in the middle of your forehead.
