Hey, that's cool - it's new and so are you: it's Lausanne-based and so are you!

What a wonderful world of coincidence, eh!

Oh, and welcome to EF.

Re: Looking for Financial Investment advice

Yes, life is full of coincidences and the most obvious is usually the best concealed.
I could only be happy to exchange info with people who investigate a bit further. I take it as a warmth welcome
Cheers.

Re: Looking for Financial Investment advice

Hello y'all.

I have been badly burnt by a so-called wealth management company who in the event were not registered in Switzerland or any other European country and who specifically target expats with unsuitable products which maximise their commission. Make sure you check that financial advisors are registered with the regulatory authority and their employees have Swiss work permits or are Swiss nationals. I have however found the Big Two banks to be open and honest about their products and services. A good Swiss tax advisor is also essential to navigate the minefield of different cantonal tax rates. Mine has paid his fees back many times over by finding deductibles which I would never have imagined, e.g. health care costs not reimbursed by the Krankenkasse.

Tax advisor, couldn't agree more. Big 2 Banks - run for your life beyond a current account. They are completely biased to their products of affiliates - check out a regulated financial advisor in Switzerland (you can google or use the FINMA lists), and get one that speaks the language you feel most comfortable with and has expertise in/affiliates with what you need (UK mortgages for example).
