A bank with deep roots

We are one of Switzerland's biggest banks and a pillar of the Vaud economy. We have more branches than any other bank in the Canton, with a comprehensive range of products and services for every banking need.

Since 1845, BCV has been working to support our local economy and provide superior service to residents and businesses across Vaud.

For the third year in a row, BCV was the most recommended bank in Vaud in a 2021 survey on what people think of the main banks in the Canton.

We are grateful to the residents of Vaud for this vote of confidence.

Retail Banking

We provide a full range of banking services targeted to the needs of students, households, and the retired. Our current accounts, savings accounts, mortgage loans, retirement accounts, and life and disability insurance are designed to help customers achieve their goals and plan for the future. And we finance one out of every three newly-built homes in Vaud.

Private Banking

Our Private Banking advisors draw on years of experience to help high-net-worth individuals manage their finances and investments for the long term. Our advisors also provide personalized advice on issues such as tax planning, estate planning, life insurance, and disability coverage.

Corporate Banking

With targeted services for companies big and small, we help enterprises grow within Vaud and around the world. Our services cover the entire business lifecycle from start-up through to succession.

Asset Management

We manage assets for public-sector institutions like
pension funds and foundations, investing their money in financial markets so as to generate solid returns.


We have our own trading room, which gives us greater independence in carrying out transactions. Investors and businesses can buy and sell stocks, bonds, and currencies through a BCV trader. We also offer a trading platform where customers – whether novice investors or seasoned hands – can buy and sell securities themselves.
