Welcome to Financial Excellence

The Swiss financial centre is synonymous the world over with security, stability and reliability and its history is characterised by excellent service quality, first-rate advisory services, an international focus and a traditional culture of discretion. The financial sector is further distinguished by its innovation and wide range of products and services. In recent years these traditional strengths have been enhanced by the systematic expansion of a technological infrastructure which has become a key competitive factor in the globalised world of finance.  

European economic and monetary union has been a reality since the start of 1999. The Swiss international financial centre was quick to adjust to the new situation in Europe and is now euro-compatible in every respect.  

"Swiss Plus - Financial Excellence" was set up in 1999 to present the strengths of the Swiss financial centre - old and new - and to communicate them throughout the world. Swiss Plus is supported by the Swiss Bankers Association and the utility infrastructure providers  SWX Swiss Exchange, SIS SegaInterSettle AG and Telekurs Group, which have joined forces to strive for "Financial Excellence".

The Swiss Bankers Association has successfully organised events under the Swiss Plus banner in the main European financial centres. High-level representatives of the Swiss government and the Swiss National Bank as well as management figures from a number of banks and other financial institutions have helped to create an informative programme of speeches, panel discussions and workshops.
