    Most banks make it a policy not to provide tax advisory services, even though there are no regulatory prohibitions to do so in Switzerland, the UK or US. But as tax considerations become increasingly important in any investment strategy, Deloitte Switzerland’s Brandi Caruso and Karim Schubiger discuss the viability of banks providing such an explicit value-add.
  • Sponsored by Lenz & Staehelin
    Switzerland has accepted a greater number of exchange of information (EOI) requests from global actors since 2009, harmonising the otherwise private nation’s banking policies with the OECD’s more transparent standards. Lenz & Staehelin’s Jean-Blaise Eckert and Frédéric Neukomm discuss the changes.
  • Sponsored by Bär & Karrer
    Withholding taxes are commonly applied in Switzerland to certain debt issues, even though many foreign jurisdictions have abolished such taxes. Bär & Karrer’s Christoph Suter and Susanne Schreiber discuss how Swiss issuers are increasingly limiting their tax exposure through foreign subsidaries and observing lender limits.
