The Swiss Bankers Association (SBA) and The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) have conducted an examination of the Swiss banking centre in a joint study. Following a period of stabilisation, the study presents a positive growth outlook, albeit one connected with significant challenges and risks. Banking regulation will remain a key issue, whereby international market access, cost implications, and the national transposition and implementation of regulations in particular will play a central role for Switzerland. The study identifies potential for growth in all areas in which the banks in Switzerland conduct business. Private banking in particular – where the Swiss banking centre will continue to defend its leading position – shows significant potential.
