US investments-implications on Swiss taxes.

My parents in the US want to gift a generous amount of money to my children for their college fund. I'm not concerned about how much interest we make from the amount. I just want to avoid having to pay too much in yearly fees/taxes on the amount.

My husband is worried about the implications on our Swiss wealth tax declarations. Is there a chart where I could find out how much more taxes we would have to pay for an "x" increase in wealth?

With this concern in mind, would it be less problematic to put the money in US mutual funds or a 529 college fund?

The tables for Canton Vaud are given in the General Instructions, which you can download here.
But the easiest way to explore the effect of an increase in your fortune on the tax that you would actually have to pay would be to put the new data in VaudTax, which will then do the calculations for you.
