Switzerland is certainly one of the most attractive countries in which to live, work and bank.

Switzerland has unique traditions, an excellent infrastructure, and an outstanding political and economic stability. Its reputation as a leading financial centre is founded on strong banking regulation and strict anti-money laundering rules and a sound and reliable legal system.

The Expansion of Barclays Bank in Switzerland

Based in Geneva since 1986, Barclays Bank (Suisse) SA combines Swiss private banking traditions with the global resources of the Barclays network to cater to the needs of clients from around the world.

In 2010, Barclays Bank (Suisse) SA moved to new premises in Grange-Canal. Featuring elegant client suites and state of-the-art facilities, the Geneva platform is ideally placed to help you manage your wealth internationally.

2012 marked the expansion of our activities backed by the opening of a branch office in Zurich in service of private clients and financial intermediaries, both at the domestic and international levels. Working more closely with the Investment Banking division (based in Zurich since 2001), we are bringing the best of Barclays to our clients.
