A global and competitive financial center

Created in 1991 by the 80 banks that were members of the Geneva stock exchange, the Geneva Financial Center (GFC) is the umbrella association of the financial sector.

Generating 37,900 jobs and contributing 12.4% of Geneva's GDP, the financial sector is based on three pillars: private and institutional asset management, commodity trade finance, and commercial and retail banking. With the presence of activities such as shipping and surveillance, Geneva benefits from a center of competence and a cluster that is unique in the world. The Geneva Financial Center Foundation's main mission is to promote this value chain and to work towards the development of optimal framework conditions for all partners in the financial center.
A strong financial center benefits the entire economy and therefore all citizens.
