A timely guide to the complex financial markets and banking secrecy of Switzerland

Since 1934, when Switzerland's federal bank secrecy law was passed, the line between myth and reality with regard to Swiss banking has been blurred. But over the past decade, there have been dramatic changes in the pressures brought to bear on all facets of the Swiss financial markets and banking sector. Recent developments and agreements have potentially weakened Swiss banking secrecy, and with that said, it is time for a book that lays out the history of Swiss bank secrecy and puts these twenty-first century changes in perspective.

Swiss Finance is a thorough overview of the Swiss financial markets and the banking secrecy this country has become known for. It covers key topics to practitioners both abroad and in the United States involved in Swiss banking and the Swiss financial markets.

  • Discusses what the Euro-debt crisis may mean for the role of Switzerland as a financial powerhouse
  • Reveals how new secrecy agreements with the United States and Germany will impact private wealth management
  • Addresses Asian competition for wealth management and tax havens

Switzerland is one of the largest financial markets in the world and a global power in private wealth administration. Whether you're a private wealth advisor, Swiss or U.S. banker, or other finance practitioner involved in the Swiss market, this guide is essential reading if you intend on achieving future success in this arena.

Praise for An Army of Frogs
"This little frog should find fans among readers of the Warriors and Redwall sagas."
Kirkus Reviews

"Pryce builds tension as the frogs figure out how to deploy their varied skills and reach the ancient turtle king who long ago placed a protective spell over their land. The violent but not overly graphic action is well matched by Greene's dynamic and plentiful full-color illustrations."
Booklist

"In this fast-paced tale, Pryce finds just the right balance between brutality and bravery, friendship and betrayal, and loss and discovery. A must-have, winning adventure that is nearly impossible to put down."
School Library Journal

"
Greene's color full-page illustrations have the richly saturated look of Marvel comic books, and there's a superhero feel to the various fighting poses Darel and his pals take."
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"This clever fantasy series featuring frogs versus scorpions, set in Australia, makes for pleasant reading."
