UBS says Switzerland’s real estate bubble risk continues to exist

Risks to the Swiss property market remained elevated in the second quarter of 2016, with rock-bottom interest rates propping up demand for residential assets to be rented out for investment purposes.

Still, UBS Group AG’s index experienced a “slight” decrease in the period, according to economists Matthias Holzhey and Claudio Saputelli. That’s because of a slowdown in the pace of mortgage growth and a 0.6 per cent decline in home prices on an inflation-adjusted basis.

Risk Warning:

Please remember that financial investments may rise or fall and past performance does not guarantee future performance in respect of income or capital growth; you may not get back the amount you invested.

There is no obligation to purchase anything but, if you decide to do so, you are strongly advised to consult a professional adviser before making any investment decisions.
