Bloomberg TOP: Oldest Swiss Bank Tells Clients to Sell U.S. Assets or Leave.

Sept. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Wegelin & Co., Switzerland’s oldest bank, is telling wealthy clients to sell their U.S. assets, or switch banks, because of concerns new rules will saddle investors with tax obligations in the world’s biggest economy.

U.S. proposals to extend reporting requirements for banks whose clients buy American stocks and bonds coupled with estate tax liabilities that may be inherited by the heirs of people who have such holdings prompted the advice from the St. Gallen, Switzerland-based bank, said Managing Partner Konrad Hummler.

“We came to the conclusion that it’s a threat to our clients,” Hummler, who is also president of the Swiss Private Bankers Association, said in an interview yesterday in Zurich. “It’s also a threat to us as a bank because as a custodian we are an executor to the estate. We find this aspect discomforting, so we recommend selling all American securities whatsoever.”

Сообщать обо всех операциях с американскими стоками? Сильно!
Бесстрашные люди у нас в парламенте сидят, однако.
Одного change and hope не достаточно, надо еще чтобы кто-то за такое предложение проголосовал. Или это ведомственная инициатива, которая вообще парламентом утверждаться не должна?
Ah yes, Switzerland, the haven for scum from all around the globe. Indeed, losing their services would be a tragedy worthy of Shakespeare :-)
А is A objectivism, понятно. Пойдите, разбомбите Швейцарию.
