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 sixth year in a row, BCV was the most recommended bank in the Canton, according to a 2023 survey on the Swiss banking industry. We thank all the people of Vaud for their support.

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