The Swiss Bankers Association is the umbrella organisation of the Swiss financial centre. Our primary objective is to create optimal framework conditions for the Swiss banks.

What we do

The Swiss Bankers Association (SBA) is the voice of the banks in Switzerland. As an umbrella organisation, we represent almost all the banks in Switzerland. Our primary objective is to promote optimal framework conditions for the Swiss financial centre in Switzerland and abroad. To this end, we represent the interests of the banks in industry, politics, and vis-à-vis the government, the authorities and the regulators.

As a think tank for the framework conditions of the future, we anticipate the developments that will be relevant to the financial centre.
