|Investing on the stock market from your Swiss bank account|

You can invest on the stock market from your Swiss bank account. Stock exchange orders can be made by telephone, Internet banking, and sometimes even by WAP or Palm device, from anywhere at all, 24/7.
There is no tax on capital gains in Switzerland, unless you are a US person investing in American securities.
The bank acts as a broker. It buys securities in its own name, so your identity is never revealed during a transaction. This guaranteed confidentiality has its price: transaction fees are slightly higher than the international average.
Online market transaction fees(NASDAQ, SWX, etc.) vary from 0.6% to 0.2%, according to the amount of the transaction. Traditional market fees amount to 1.30% to 0.75% (NYSE, AMEX, LSE (London), XETRA (Frankfurt), EURONEXT (Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam), MSE (Milan), etc.). There is a minimum fee for every transaction.
