Study of the performance of 87 private banks in Switzerland.

An analysis of 87 Swiss private banks over 2010 to 2015 shows that the gap between strong and weak performers continues to grow. Levels of Net New Money are negligible and two-thirds of banks are seeing worsening returns on equity, while cost-income ratios rise. Despite efforts to turn around their performances, many banks face a stark reality – that they cannot survive. In 2015 alone, 10% of Swiss banks were forced to sell up or close their doors.
