Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a landlocked alpine country in Western Europe. This small multi-lingual country, of a little over 7 million people, has four national languages, German, French, Italian, and Romansch. Famous for their private banking laws, the Swiss are renowned the world over as the most prestigious and secure bankers in the world.
Banking in Switzerland is characterized by stability, privacy and protection of clients' assets and information. The country's tradition of bank secrecy, which dates to the Middle Ages, was first codified in a 1934 law.
Due to their laws and reputation, Swiss banks are the most used worldwide for asset protection and wealth management. Currently an estimated one-third of all offshore funds are kept in Switzerland. In 2001 Swiss banks managed US$2.6 trillion.
