How private is Swiss banking?
It is illegal for employees of Swiss banks to reveal any information about customers’ accounts.
This secrecy is the foundation for the success of the Swiss banking industry, so you can be sure that your privacy will be totally respected.
You should note, however, that in recent years, several agreements have been signed between Switzerland and countries including the USA, Germany and the UK in attempt to crack down on tax evasion.
These agreements mean that, while Switzerland fiercely protects privacy, there are some circumstances where banks must cooperate with foreign authorities
