Edition: 2/2017

The US is an important trade partner for Switzerland. In 2015, Swiss exports to the US amounted to USD 37bn and mainly consisted of pharmaceutical products, metals, optical and medical instruments, organic chemicals, clocks and watches, machinery and mechanical appliances. With a total cumulated invested capital of USD 258bn as of 2015, Switzerland is among the ten largest foreign direct investors in the US. Despite a strong US dollar, the US currently offers an attractive, innovation driven macroeconomic environment with strong growth prospects. Hence, attractive investment opportunities arise for Swiss investors. While the US market has some similarities to the European market, there are some unique features that investors need to be aware of. With first-hand experience and local teams on the ground, PwC can help you to avoid common pitfalls when doing deals in the US.
