    Banking innovations for the future

    Swiss Banks have had a hard time recently: reform of statutory regulations, increased capital requirements and record low interest rates have eroded profit margins. New technologies and innovation provide a possible way out, though they pose their own risks. Therefore, exceptionally well-crafted solutions and sophisticated strategies are needed to remain competitive.
