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:
http://www.swissbanking.org/en/home/faq-kontoeroeffnung.htm

Generic FAQ from a consulting firm:
http://www.swconsult.ch/chbanks/faq.htm

Very detailed (however customised) FAQ from a private bank:
http://swiss-bank-accounts.com/e/faq/before.html

(no endorsement intended)


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