Tradition and innovation – Swiss economic history on securities certificates

At the new exhibition of Wertpapierwelt, the Swiss economic history is presented for the first time on securities certificates.

Over 100 shares and bonds are documenting the rapid expansion of the Swiss economy from 1800 to the present day. "Swiss quality" and "Swiss made" have become global bywords not only with regard to watches and chocolate!

The exhibition was realised in collaboration with the University of Freiburg. In the winter semester 2006/2007, students researched the corporate histories of ten companies as part of a seminar on the milestones of the Swiss economic history from the 19th century to the present day.
