Swiss-Arab Wealth Management Forum - 2014
Creating a New Financial Management Model for a New World
Switzerland is one of the most efficiently regulated and supervised financial centers in the world today with the Swiss financial centre being a central pillar of the Swiss economy as it employs about 6% of the total workforce and generates over 10 % of the Swiss GDP. The key players in the Swiss financial centre are the banks. One of their core businesses is wealth management reflected in a ranking of the world’s largest wealth managers, which places three Swiss banks in the top ten. In terms of cross-border private wealth management Switzerland is the undisputed world market leader with a share of 27%, or CHF 2,100 billion.
