We are Switzerland's fifth-largest bank and a pillar of the Vaud economy. We have more advisors than any other bank in the Canton, with a comprehensive range of products and services for every banking need.
Wherever you are
With nearly 70 branches and over 200 ATMs across Vaud, we offer the largest banking network in the region. You can also sign up for 24/7 online banking through BCV-net and our mobile app, BCV-net mobile.
Whatever you need
A fixture in Vaud Canton
Established in 1845, BCV has steadily expanded its operations and branch network to better serve the residents of Vaud.
A strong corporate culture
At BCV, we believe that a key to long-term success is ensuring that all our employees share a common culture built around core values. Those values underpin all our actions – as well as our interactions with customers and colleagues.
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.
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.
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. We provided loans to 3,000 Vaud SMEs in 2013. In 2014, we provided loans to 8,500 small and medium-sized businesses, including 3,000 micro-businesses.
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.
