Technology sectors

Switzerland and Greater Zurich are world leaders in innovation and the ability to attract talent. For a good reason: ETH Zurich is the best university in continental Europe. Technology leaders like Google, Microsoft, IBM, Disney, ABB, Biogen, Johnson & Johnson or Roche operate important R&D sites in the region. They all count on the concentrated technology excellence in Europe's most stable environment.

Investing in Zurich was the best decision we've ever made.
