About
Switzerland is internationally known for beautiful landscapes, quality products such as exquisite watches and delicious chocolates as well as for its professional financial industry. Bankers are sometimes referred to as the gnomes of Zurich because they discretely manage the assets of their clients thanks to the legendary banking secrecy. Listen to exciting stories about some of the most notorious clients (such as dictators, fraudsters and other criminals) of the gnomes of Zurich. The 90-minute walking tour takes you through the heart of the Swiss financial center. You will be accompanied by a very experienced compliance expert, who presents this topic in a compact and entertaining way.

Fantastic Tour!
May 2019 • Couples
We learned secret information about crooked banking clients. Our tour guide was a former compliance officer & investigator for Swiss Banking Regulators. Learn the inside scoop about hidden Swiss bank accounts, held by Nazis, embezzlers & dictators.

Mark was an excellent, well informed guide. You don't have to be a banker to totally enjoy this tour!
