Recent Research

In one of his recent co-authored research projects, Prof. Ziegler investigates the effects of Swiss banking secrecy on the stock market. More specifically, the researchers look at the value of banking secrecy for two universal Swiss banks and two private Swiss banks. They find that the value of banking secrecy to private banks is large, accounting for at least 10% of their market value, whereas banking secrecy appears to account for only a very small fraction of the market value of universal banks.
