The normalos among customers, on the other hand, should be happy if UBS and the other financial institutions do not take a negative interest in their eyes. For them, the rates increase with a monthly rate.
The last spin on the screw: the cash relationship at the UBS counter costs something. That is 2 francs per purchase in each of the 300 branches of the large bank in Switzerland.
"From 1 July two francs will go for
any cash withdrawal in CHF at the UBS counter of a UBS private account
or from a private bank account of a UBS account settled in CHF, "said

Customers know recently.
That means: UBS demands money if someone comes to the counter and wants to have his money.
His money, not that of UBS.

There, the UBS spike donated only 300 million in a palace of marble and stucco. Golden offices for the carpet floor: that too wants to be financed.
Normal customers need to feel comfortable at one of the countless ATMs to get money there – that's the idea of UBS leadership.
But even there it is deleted where it is possible. In Bern, UBS informed its customers at the start of the year about the closure of an ATM.
The picture is sobering: the bank, which dictates the trend in Switzerland because of its size and importance, is becoming increasingly busy.
