2017 Annual Report

This activity report provides an overview of the main issues that were addressed by the Geneva Financial Center (GFC) and their progress over the past twelve months.

During the past year, the GFC has focused on ensuring that every effort is made in Geneva, as well as in Switzerland as a whole, to make the Financial Center even more competitive and enable it to continue to play its role as a driving force of the economy.

The financial center has probably changed more in the past ten years than in the entire previous century. It has had to contend with a major paradigm shift in the fields of tax and regulation. During this period, the center has proved highly resilient thanks to its diversity and ability to innovate.

The leading role played by enterprises in the sector, the political authorities and the world of education will enable the finance of the future to be created for the prosperity of Geneva.
