The biggest loss is expected to come from US investors – after a recently positive 2019. 

Last year American firms invested more in Switzerland than Germany. But the long-term trend is down, according to the study.

The study highlights the issues some companies see with investing in Switzerland – including tax uncertainties, high wages, cost of living and several languages.
