Ladies and gentlemen

Welcome to the annual Money Market Event of the Swiss National Bank (SNB) in Geneva. We are delighted that so many of you accepted our invitation to attend. The SNB attaches great importance to meeting representatives of Switzerland's business and financial communities.

Traditionally, we have held two speeches - and we are continuing this tradition today. In my remarks, I shall explore developments on the Swiss franc capital market. Then my colleague, Dewet Moser, will speak about the foreign exchange market and future changes in reference interest rates.
