    The Swiss Helvetia Fund, Inc. Announces Director Replacement

    Mr. Dayan is the President and owner of Cactus Trading, an importer and exporter of clothing and accessories.  He serves as a board member of Putnam High Income Securities Fund, and previously served on the board of directors of Emergent Capital, Inc.  Previously, Mr. Dayan served for 10 years as Chief Financial Officer of Biltmore Textiles, and was an auditor for an independent registered public accounting firm.  The Board has concluded that Mr. Dayan satisfies the Fund's director qualification standards in light of his tenure as a senior executive officer of various industrial businesses, and that he does not have any conflicts of interest that would preclude him from serving as a Class I Director of the Fund. The Fund (www.swzfund.com) is a non-diversified, closed-end investment company seeking long-term capital appreciation through investment in equity and equity-linked securities of Swiss companies.  Its shares are listed on the NYSE under the symbol "SWZ."  The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing generally in Swiss equity and equity-linked securities that are traded on a Swiss stock exchange, traded at the pre-bourse level of one or more Swiss stock exchanges, traded through a market maker or traded over the counter in Switzerland.  The Fund also may invest in Swiss equity and equity-linked securities of Swiss companies that are traded on other major European stock exchanges.
