Why invest?

  • Higher returns: When you invest through BCV, your savings can grow up to 30 times faster than in a traditional savings account.
  • Reliable support: Investing can be daunting when you’re starting out. But you can get the support you need from our advisors, who are available to answer your questions at a branch or by videoconference.
  • Flexibility: We’ll propose an investment solution in line with your needs, whether you intend to invest large sums of money or as little as CHF 100 per month.
  • Sustainability: BCV promotes sustainable investment choices.

What should you invest in?

  • Investor profile: Before you invest, we will sit down with you to determine your investor profile, which is based on your financial capacity, risk tolerance, and experience in finance.
  • Investment objectives: We will prepare an investment proposal that’s in line with your investment timeframe and how you wish to invest your money (e.g., through a large initial investment, or smaller, regular investments).
  • Investing sustainably: If you prefer sustainable investments, we’ll take that into account. All our funds apply ESG criteria, and one fund in particular – ESG Ambition – is designed to contribute actively to sustainable development.
