Economic sustainability

Serving the people and businesses of our Canton

BCV is the leading bank in Vaud Canton, our home region. Half of the people and businesses in the Canton bank with us. So do many Vaud public-sector entities such as municipalities. Seven of ten Vaud pension funds turn to us to manage their assets. Our universal-bank range of products and services means that we’re there for our customers at all the key moments in their lives.

In 2020, we teamed up with other Swiss banks and the federal and cantonal authorities to develop the Covid-19 bridge-loan program.

In 2020

110 new businesses financed

More than 6000 crédits COVID-19 granted

More than 50 business successions financed

Suspension of loan repayments of more than 2000 SMEs

Maintaining our financial solidity over the long term

Our strategy is designed to create value sustainably over the long term.

Our solid financial position has been consistently recognized by the two leading credit rating agencies, Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s, which reaffirmed our ratings of AA and Aa2, respectively. On the basis of those ratings, we are considered to be one of the world’s safest banks.

Staying close to our customers across multiple channels

We remain the most widely accessible bank in Vaud thanks to our dense retail network. At the same time, we continue to enhance customers’ access to our products and services across a number of digital channels. BCV customers can choose to bank online, visit one of our branches, and even speak with an advisor remotely.

Over 60 branch offices throughout Vaud

65% of our customers use our digital banking services
