About us


Banks have existed in Switzerland since the 16th cen­tury, and the profession has had its own association for 100 years.

Review 2016/2017

In the last 12 months, the Swiss Bankers Association (SBA) organised its structure along clear strategic areas of focus and aligned itself in a business-orientated manner. The team is complete and the SBA is positioned to act as a think tank for the stakeholder groups and members. The SBA has a clear ambition for the Swiss financial centre to maintain its leading position.


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.
