The Swiss Banking Sector

The Swiss Banking Sector is different from other banking sectors of the world in that the sector provides secrecy to clients’ information to a high extent and is fairly stable. The banking sector is the leader in asset management of foreign entities and contributes to 9 percent of the Swiss GDP. The Swiss economy showed positive growth during 2004-2007 but in the last quarter of 2008 it showed a decline of 0.6 percent due to the global economic crisis and this was especially due to the decline in the banking sector. The sector has been facing challenges in recent times due to the global economic crisis and the largest bank UBS posted heavy losses and faced pressure of revealing account information from USA[1].
