Blackrock study – «Swiss investors withdraw funds into the Franks» News

Wednesday, August 30th, 2017 | Economy

For the second time since 2015, the wealth administrator Blackrock has surveyed around 200 wealthy Swiss citizens with an average of 1.6 million Swiss francs of capital invested over their investment behavior.
As the analysis shows, the persistently economically uncertain environment is noticeable in investment behavior: 33 percent of assets are held in cash, while the equity ratio is at a low 37 percent. "In particular, the high cash rate shows that expectations are cautious and that investors have a great need for security," says André Bantli, Head of Retail Business Blackrock Switzerland, in the cash video interview.
Although Swiss investors see their personal financial future more positively than two years ago (values ​​like trust have risen from 35 percent to 39 percent, satisfaction from 22 percent to 28 percent), security has become the dominant topic. The feeling of living in secure economic times has fallen from 19 per cent to 12 per cent.
Swiss rely on known ones
The increased need for security is also reflected in the "cocooning" of investors, ie, the withdrawal into well-known, domestic facilities. "Swiss investors are returning funds to their home currency," says Bantli. This is not necessarily Swiss shares, but generally investments in Swiss francs, which also includes foreign funds or shares in Swiss francs.
One-third of the interviewees only hold investments in Swiss francs. In addition, the wealthy investors in nearby countries see great potential: the highest growth prospects are attributed to industrialized countries in Western Europe and Scandinavia.
In the cash video interview André Bantli says how many survey participants have a precautionary plan and how Swiss would react to the introduction of negative interest rates on savings.
