Every investor managing a company in Switzerland must always pay attention to the country's credit rating. There are several rating agencies that evaluate every country’s economy on an annual basis and then award them with a rating. Basically this credit rating is an evaluation of the country’s ability to pay back its debt. A sovereign credit rating is the rating of a government; it indicates the risk level of the investment environment in a certain country. This is a complex indicator composed of numerous factors such as political risk, currency stability, GDP and many others. The most renowned rating agencies are Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s, Fitch


All 3 major credit agencies mentioned above awarded a AAA credit rating for Switzerland. This is the highest rate that can be obtained and it means reflects a stable economy and low risks for foreign investors decided to open Swiss companies. AAA has an exceptional degree of creditworthiness and in means that the country can easily meet its financial commitments. The indicator is a measure of trust, often used by investors to gauge the credit worthiness of the country and therefore impacting Switzerland’s borrowing costs.


In a report issued in May 2014 Fitch agency announced the extension of AAA rating for Switzerland, stating that Switzerland is a “highly advanced, well diversified and wealthy economy with strong governance and a track record of sound economic policy”. The country managed to surpass the global financial and Eurozone crisis due to its durable economy with an increasing GDP indicator for the past 5 years.


The country’s public finances are strong in comparison to other European countries and investments opportunities are numerous. All measures applied by the Government regarding the fiscal framework are characterized by prudence and they confer strong credibility to the investment opportunity. These measures also succeed in attracting foreign investors by applying tax reductions in certain Swiss cantons.


The Swiss economy demonstrated high resilience to the latest economic challenges and consolidated the country’s status as an investor safe-haven. Our company formation specialists would be happy to assist and offer consultancy regarding this investment environment and also the types of Swiss companies that can be established.
