Best bank accounts

Hi,

I am moving to Switzerland at end of this year for work.

Trying to work out the best bank account to open and also a credit card.

It will be for 'normal' life, salary in and expenses out. I will use ATM's and mostly online transactions.

I will transfer money to the UK and the Netherlands from time to time.

Also in the future I will open a trading account, but I read another thread talking about cornertrader for this.

Many thanks in advance
Mark

Re: Best bank accounts

Free credit card can be had at either Coop or Migros.

Re: Best bank accounts

I'd go for NEON as bank, Migros and Coop Credit Cards for CHF credit cards, and Revolut for all international matters.

You should take one of the Kantonal banks for ALL your financial transactions. Many of the others have " negative interest rates "
