Wealth

At national level, no individual data are available on the assets of private households. However, the Federal Tax Administration (FTA) has wealth data that it receives in aggregated form pursuant to the fiscal equalization requirements of the cantonal tax offices. Based on these data, the FTA compiles the Swiss wealth statistics of natural persons. The following page only deals with this statistic.
