Is an economic decline on the cards for Switzerland?

Currency Converter

Switzerland has been benefiting from investors’ faith in the Swiss franc, causing its value to change drastically. But could this lead to economic problems for the European country?

The problems that are beginning to affect the country are related to the increased exportation that they have experienced over recent years.

Many Swiss manufacturers and retailers are now finding that large proportions of their stock are being exported. This means that, in order for the Swiss incomes and earnings to be kept level with the increase, they are being forced to charge higher prices.

These higher prices are therefore disrupting their businesses as a number of customers are unwilling, or unable, to afford these increases. This, in turn, has a knock-on effect on the success and performance of businesses which could affect the Swiss economy if left unchecked.

The change in the relative value of their currency is attributed as the main cause of the problem, with some suggesting that further changes would be impossible to cope with.

The value of the Swiss franc was equivalent to that of €1 only a couple of weeks ago, compared to a value of €1 to 1.35 Swiss francs last year.

This drastic change over such a short time period has led to the aforementioned economic problems, with the current condition of the European economy and the failing strength of the Euro only adding to these problems.

This means that the Swiss economy is now beginning to experience some adverse effects, something which could lead to an eventual economic decline or regression.

Transferring money to Switzerland

Are you looking to invest in Switzerland? If so, think carefully about how you will be transferring money to Switzerland. Foreign currency exchange rates quoted by banks are usually worse than the exchange rates available through specialist currency dealers.

So if you are sending money to Switzerland – which you will inevitably have to do if you are looking to make a property investment - be sure to compare the market before you buy your overseas currency.
