Branches of foreign banks

 Legend:

  • Branches of foreign banks

    Most of these banks operate in the field of investment banking; some of them also focus on asset management for foreign clients.

    These are international banks focused particularly on the country of origin. As in respects of their legal status, they are not legal entities in their own right, being subordinate to their parent company.

    A licence is required for any foreign bank that wishes to establish a registered office, branch office or agency in Switzerland. Additional information may be found in the Ordinance on Foreign Banks in Switzerland (Foreign Bank Ordinance).

    The Association of Foreign Banks in Switzerland: since 1972, includes all foreign banks represented in Switzerland. Foreign banks include both the foreign-controlled banks operating under Swiss law and the branches of foreign banks operating in Switzerland.
