Invest Worldwide – through Swiss Bank Account



Since the terrorist attack on 9.11, the economic globalization has got into a new stage.  Restriction has been made to individual economic activities that were comparatively free in the industrialized nations, especially in the international investing and other international transactions. 


In the globalized world, any big business cannot afford without investing from abroad.  On the other hand, individuals should desirably avoid the risk of concentration through investing internationally.  (In the early 1990s, the Japanese investors lost more than a half of their financial assets, but they would not have lost that big if they had learned to invest in foreign markets.)  However, it is getting more and more difficult to open a non-residential account with banks or securities brokers.  As a result, individuals are forced to take a risk of concentration within their national market.  If their national market is going down, individuals are necessarily losing their money even when the rest of the world is going up.


Take the United States for example.  Before 9.11, many banks and securities brokers in the United States accepted the account opening requests from foreign countries.  Non-resident foreigners wishing to open an account were only required to submit a simple form called W-8 to each financial institution, not to the Internal Revenue Service.  Today most of the financial institutions require for Social Security Number, which is not available for non-residential foreigners, or require at least Taxpayer Identification Number.


It means it has become almost impossible for non-resident foreigners to invest in the United States without disclosing your identity to the US Government, whose taxation is reputedly the strictest in the world.  Nevertheless the American stocks are still irresistibly attractive to the investors.  Then, how can you invest in American stocks?  Do you accept disclosure of your information to the US Government?


In spite of the globalization, you see such inconvenience is prevailing the world.  To invest worldwide, you must disclose yourself worldwide.  Otherwise, you cannot get wealthy.  Recently even in offshore financial centers like Hong-Kong, we hear banks or securities brokers refusing foreign customers.


But please do not worry.  There is a way.


As a matter of fact, Private Banking is the major way to avoid such inconvenience.  If you have an account with a Swiss Private Bank, the bank will invest in the name of the bank itself (but in behalf of you, of course).  Accordingly, if your money is invested worldwide in stocks, bonds, mutual funds or hedge funds, nobody but the bank knows you are the beneficiary owner of those investments.  Your identity is strictly protected under the famous Swiss Banking Law.  (It should be noted that some people purchase securities, mutual funds or hedge funds even in their national market through Swiss Banks as it keeps them anonym to their government.) This is the very difference from the ordinary banks, which might have preference of their relationship with the government authorities over the customersf assets.


The real private banking is developed particularly in the financial culture of Switzerland.  It is quite doubtful if so-called gprivate bankingh conducted by American, Japanese or Chinese banks is a real equivalent of the Swiss Private Banking, as such banks are not likely to resist their government in any situation.  Needless to say, their governments – as they are not Swiss government – do not encourage such resistance, either.


Globalization is not to be proceeded for the sake of one nation or government (even though sometimes it may seem to be so).  Globalization should be useful to individuals through enabling transnational communications and activities by individuals, including economic activities like investing.  This is surely a positive aspect of globalization, as it should bring opportunities to people regardless of their nationalities.  The Swiss Banks are assisting it through their services.
