I've thought about opening a Swiss banking account but don't really have the vaguest idea how to go about doing that. What resources can others on this board suggest where a person could educate themselves on all things related to opening such an account?


Why cross the pond when you've got similar safety next door?

The Bank of Nova Scotia or Scotiabank (BNS) is one of Canada's big five banks and the only one completely unscathed by our subprime mortgage mess:

All of the other Canadian Big Five banks are "a little bit pregnant."

Toronto Dominion Bank (TD) escaped relatively unscathed by comparison to the other Big Five Canadian banks which are "showing" to various degrees.

I own shares in BNS and am thinking of opening an account there soon.
