The Swiss Advantage: Why choose Switzerland for your next FDI venture

19 Dec 2023

Switzerland is an ideal jurisdiction for foreign direct investment (FDI) thanks to its robust economy, political stability and competitive edge in knowledge-based production.

Among the core benefits that set Switzerland apart in the global arena are:

  • Strong and diverse economy: Switzerland’s economic landscape is a blend of a highly developed financial service sector and a manufacturing industry known for its high-tech and knowledge-based production. This combination offers fertile ground for diverse investment opportunities
  • Political stability: Switzerland delivers the stability investors look for. With its transparent legal system and consistent economic policies, Switzerland ensures a secure investment environment. The Swiss legal system is also particularly favourable to FDI
  • Competitive tax rates: The 26 Swiss cantons engage in healthy tax competition, offering some of the most competitive corporate tax rates globally. This both reduces the financial burden on investors and maximises their profitability
  • Accessibility: Nestled in the heart of Europe, Switzerland’s central location and two major airports make it a convenient and accessible hub for international business. In addition to convenient access to Europe, Switzerland is also a gateway to African and Middle Eastern markets
  • Global recognition: In 2023, Switzerland was found to have the most innovative economy for the 13th year in a row. Its economy also ranks highly in the Global Competitiveness Report. As such, Switzerland enjoys a solid reputation in wealth management and a vast treaty network, enhancing its attractiveness for FDI
  • Highly skilled workforce: With a highly educated and multilingual workforce, Switzerland is a major centre of research and development (R&D) and provides excellent opportunities for partnerships, supported by flexible labour laws and a pro-business environment
