Press Release as PDF

Despite ongoing structural change, shrinking interest margins and a challenging market environment: the Swiss banks reported a rise in both assets under management and net income in 2014. Companies and private individuals benefitted from intact bank lending. Domestic mortgage loans rose moderately by 3.6 percent. A slight decrease in staff levels in 2014 reflects the more difficult framework conditions. The banks expect the employment trend to remain constant or improve slightly in the second half of 2015.
