Perched in the Alps, the landlocked nation of Switzerland is as unique as it is intriguing. Famous for its skiing, financial system and high standards of living, Switzerland could be argued to be the world’s capital of banking and savings.
Switzerland’s economy is highly focused on services, notably banking and finance. Swiss banks are famous around the world for their extreme consistency and security, both physical and in terms of investment growth. Services account for 70% of GDP and watches, medicines, gold and jewellery make up the majority of exports.
