AS AN AMERICAN LIVING IN THE UNITED STATES, CAN I OPEN AN ACCOUNT WITH A SWISS BANK?
There are several Swiss banks which welcome American clients (private clients, companies, trusts) in collaboration with a Swiss SEC-registered investment advisor (Swiss SEC RIA). Your Swiss SEC RIA will assist you with the choice of bank and the ensuing account opening formalities. Opening an account in Switzerland is almost as easy as opening one at home. Alternatively, some Swiss SEC RIAs also provide US custodians.
