|Why can I not just walk into a Swiss bank to open an account?|

Opening an account in Switzerland is not like opening one in your home country, where you can normally do it with your driver's license and 10$. Swiss banks have to face heavy due diligence regulations and are very cautious in dealing with new clients. They prefer when the client comes introduced and properly documented by somebody they trust.
Moreover there are 400 banks in Switzerland, and all specialize in one way or another into a specific customer segment. Knowing these differences between Swiss banks and their internal policies and organization is the key to locating the bank that will provide a given client with the best possible service with only the restrictions made necessary by Swiss law. This is our job.
Using our bank introduction services, you benefit from the intimate knowledge of a Swiss professional. We provide you with neutral, objective advice about what bank will best answer your requirements, then make sure you are assigned the best available account officer in that bank. Finally, we will make sure the opening procedure is as quick and straightforward as possible.
