Do you like BCGE ?


we are considering to switch from UBS to BCGE, as the UBS fees are quite high and we get a free BCGE account via our employer.

Do you have any experiences with BCGE? Positives, negatives?

Thank you,

Re: Do you like BCGE ?

I'm a a pretty simple user - One main account, one savings, one credit card, two maestro cards (joint for me and wife).

Positive :
Because of a deal with my employer, I have completely free banking with BCGE
Been with them 6+ years, never had a complaint.
Online offering does all of my everyday needs, web / iphone
You can deal with them in EN if you want, in person, online, on phone.

Negative :
Couple of times I had to physically go to the bank for little things. My maestro card split, they wouldn't accept a request for new one by phone, web, email. Same for a statement from +3 years ago, had to physically go in..

No idea how it is if you want to do something complex. I do everything online except those noted above.

Re: Do you like BCGE ?

No idea about them, but it seems BCGE is quite popular with employers
A friend who lives in Zurich has an account with BCGE, because of a deal with their employer (that is based solely in Zurich).
