Profit distribution NBS

Under the National Bank Act, the SNB is required to set up provisions from its annual result in order to maintain the currency reserves at the level necessary for monetary policy. The remaining net profit after the allocation to the provisions is, in principle, available for distribution to the Confederation and the cantons. To ensure that distribution flows are smoothed in the medium term, the FDF and the SNB establish the key distribution goals in an agreement that covers several years. This facilitates financial planning for the Confederation and the cantons.”
