Tables and charts (data.snb.ch)

The annual report on the balance of payments provides commentaries on transactions between Switzerland and other countries. The balance of payments consists of the current account (trade in goods and services, as well as income), capital transfers and the financial account (net acquisition of financial assets and incurrence of liabilities in direct investment and other investment, and reserve assets).

The annual report on Switzerland's international investment position comments on the stocks of foreign assets and foreign liabilities, as well as Switzerland's net investment position.

The SNB compiles the report on the Swiss balance of payments and international investment position in accordance with IMF guidelines.

From 2015, the balance of payments and international investment position will be published as one combined report.
