Credit Suisse Building in Zurich

The Headquarters of the Credit Suisse bank is at the north end of a Zurich square called Paradeplatz. This is close to the main Zurich railway station and on the city’s tram network. On the west side of the same square is the HQ of the UBS bank, and the impressive architecture of both banks is a reminder of the financial power of Swiss banking. This is only one of Credit Suisse’s 550 offices worldwide, and the bank is in the process of adding space for 2,500 employees to work at its new offices 3 km out of town, which will bring the total working there up to 8,000.
