Swiss National Bank Chairman Thomas Jordan said increasing global economic risks such as Brexit and U.S.-Chinese trade tensions meant the central bank will stick to its ultra-loose monetary policy for the foreseeable future. Interest rates internationally are likely to remain very low, Jordan said on Thursday as the SNB retained its own expansive stance to guard against fallout from the "highly valued" Swiss franc.

A British departure from the European Union without a deal could hurt international trade, trigger turbulence on the currency markets and hit Switzerland, Swiss National Bank Chairman Thomas Jordan said on Wednesday. Global uncertainty has risen in recent months, Jordan told an event in Aarau, meaning the SNB had to stick to its current expansive monetary policy to block a rise in the safe-haven franc.
The Swiss National Bank kept its ultra-loose monetary policy in place on Thursday, citing the "fragile" exchange-rate situation and international tensions as reasons to maintain its expansive course into a fourth year. The tension surrounding Italy's fiscal policy also persists," SNB Chairman Thomas Jordan told a news conference. The SNB kept its target range for the three-month London interbank offered rate (LIBOR) at -1.25 to -0.25 percent, as unanimously forecast by 32 economists polled by Reuters.

The Swiss National Bank kept its ultra-loose monetary policy in place on Thursday, citing the "fragile" exchange rate situation and rising international trade tensions and protectionism. The SNB kept its target range for the three-month London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) at -1.25 to -0.25 percent, as unanimously forecast by 36 economists polled by Reuters. The central bank also kept the interest rate it charges on sight deposits at -0.75 percent, adding it remained ready to intervene in the foreign currency markets to counter a rise in the Swiss franc.
A radical plan to transform Switzerland's financial landscape by barring commercial banks from electronically creating money when they lend was resoundingly rejected by Swiss voters on Sunday. More than three quarters rejected the so-called Sovereign Money initiative, according to the official result released from the Swiss government. All of the country's self-governing cantons also voted against in the poll, which needed a majority from Switzerland's 26 cantons as well as a simple majority of voters to succeed.

A radical plan to upend Switzerland's financial landscape by barring commercial banks from creating money when they lend looks likely to be defeated, Swiss broadcaster SRF said on Sunday.
Swiss voters will learn on Sunday if their country will be the first in the world to introduce a radical new financial system that would bar commercial banks creating money each time they made a loan. The initiative, called under Switzerland's system of direct democracy after gathering more than 100,000 votes, wants to make the Swiss National Bank (SNB) the only authority in the country authorised to create money in the country. The plan, if accepted could have repercussions beyond Switzerland's borders by removing a practice which underpins most of bank lending in the world.
