Also for our foreign customers, we are the bank of choice.
Already today thousands of foreign customers entrust us with the management of their assets or their banking business. In addition to our tight network of branches close to the borders, there are many other reasons for choosing BKB as their main bank:
- Guaranteed Discretion: Swiss Banking Secrecy, anchored in the Banking Law for more than 70 years, ensures maximum personal and data protection. Based on the principle of equal treatment, this protection applies equally for Swiss and foreign customers and protects our customers’ personal financial spheres to a large extent even from foreign authorities. However, banking secrecy is not absolute and in particular does not afford protection for criminals: Swiss banks are fundamentally obligated to disclose information to judiciary authorities in criminal proceedings, regardless of whether the crime was perpetrated in Switzerland or in another country.
- Maximum Security: BKB is backed by the state and has an excellent S&P rating of AA+.
- Experience: BKB is an all-service bank with more than 100 years of tradition and experience in Private Banking.
- Excellent Asset Management: Within the scope of extensive testing, independent business journalists awarded the predicate “magna cum laude” to the asset management service of BKB. Consequently, Basler Kantonalbank numbers among the “Elite of Asset Managers”.
Within the framework of the Savings Directive (on the taxation of interest income within the EU), you can choose between the reporting procedure and automatic tax withholding, whereby banking secrecy is completely safeguarded. We would welcome the opportunity to convince you in a personal consultation of our competence and of the quality of service at BKB.
