Can I open an account, even without being a Swiss national?
Yes, you can if you live in Switzerland and are a citizen from a EEA country (EU member states, Liechtenstein and Norway). Hope it works for you.
@dimisjim Thanks for your question! I think my colleague Eve answered it for you already, but if you have any further questions about how to sign-up for an account with us feel free to stop by our in-person pop-up location!
Our team will be there to answer all of your questions in-person:

Oh, and we'll be holding our first official Community Event & Apéro on 5 Oct from 18:00 at this location as well. You can sign up for the event here to get to know us even better.
We hope to see you there!
Seems like the issue was that I am Greek. Why is it currently restricted for Greeks and Icelandic?
I have to check with our compliance department but I will get back to you as soon as possible.
According to this: https://www.moneyland.ch/en/swiss-bank-accounts-for-foreigners
"There are no laws which forbid Swiss banks from opening accounts for foreigners living in Switzerland, regardless of their citizenship."
Thus the question arises: Which compliance regulations are you referring to, that does not permit Greeks & Icelanders open up an account?
@dimisjim Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We are investigating the reasons with our compliance and tech teams and will get back to you as soon as we have an answer! We're prioritizing this, thanks for your patience.
I've just tried and it is available now for Greeks.
