Switzerland

With its low unemployment rate, high per capita income, policies of long-term monetary security and political stability, Switzerland is one of the most stable economies in the world. This stability has made it a safe haven for investors, who have brought with them a steady tide of foreign investment. Switzerland's economy holds a highly developed service sector, led by financial services. Industry still accumulates for over a quarter of the Swiss GDP and focuses on the manufacturing of high-technology, knowledge-based products. The obvious business advantage Switzerland has to offer makes it a competitive economy for many businesses to operate from.

Since early 2000, ING Wholesale Banking (WB) has been operating a specific branch unit in Switzerland, offering a comprehensive range of corporate banking services, trade and commodity finance, and payments and cash services. We provide financial solutions to internationally active Swiss companies, leading international companies that have their headquarters established in Switzerland and non-governmental institutions based in Geneva. Over the years, ING WB is a market leader in the very specific commodity finance business in Geneva as one of the top 3 banks in the sector. We also have a proven track record as being a leading provider of banking and financing services and products to subsidiaries of international ING clients based in Switzerland.

We look forward to being your partner in lending, financial markets and other key financial products. With our strong client-focused mentality, we build up a long-term relationship with our clients enabling us to fully understand their business, which lets us provide them with sound financial advice and the custom-built products to suit their business needs.
