Swiss fi­nan­cial sec­tor re­in­forces its po­si­tion as key sec­tor of the Swiss econ­o­my


The Swiss financial sector is rapidly recovering from the far-reaching financial and economic crisis, reinforcing its position as a key sector of the Swiss economy. In 2014, the sector's economic activity, taking direct and indi-rect factors into account, resulted in gross value added of around CHF 81.1 billion and 393,000 full-time equivalent jobs. This is shown by the results of the economic impact analysis drawn up by BAKBASEL, commissioned by the Swiss Bankers Asso-ciation (SBA) and the Swiss Insurance Association (SIA).
