DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/b3zr2v/country_viewport) has announced the addition of Shift Thought Ltd's new report "Country Viewport: Digital Money in Switzerland 2014" to their offering.
The country is currently undergoing what the author believes to be the greatest transformation in financial services in 80 years, as Switzerland seeks to transform itself with respect to the changes across the world.
In Europe we've had digital money services since the 1990s. Yet the recent pressures on Swiss bank secrecy coupled with the advent of a series of new services across the world, creates an imperative for innovation in the country. Some of the largest banks have encountered issues regarding tax evasion claims from the US and India. In this country, found to be the most expensive in the world, locals have voted to have the super-rich foreigners to pay more Swiss tax. Against this backdrop, this report investigates how the country could seek to redefine its business model, and what impact this could have for providers around the world who wish to support these efforts.
