What resources can others on this board suggest where a person could educate themselves on all things related to opening such an account?


General background from the Swiss Banker's Association:

Generic FAQ from a consulting firm:

Very detailed (however customised) FAQ from a private bank:

(no endorsement intended)


For obvious reasons, I'd stay away from those supersized banks that also have sizeable investment banking business, and US operations...
