Finance for the Future
Stability, universality, responsibility and excellence – these are the four cornerstones of Swiss banking. These values are the foundation of the success of the Swiss financial center.
However, it is important to keep up with the most recent trends and developments that are promising for the future. The Swiss banks will on the one hand continue to orientate themselves along the four cornerstones. On the other hand, it will be essential to take recent developments as FinTech and Sustainability in account in order to stay a competitive in the long run. Of course, we will also discuss the impact of the current global health situation on the financial markets.
