Our branch network

Your advisors in our branches
With twelve branches in French- and German-speaking Switzerland, we favour a selective local presence. These are all doors that open up to the human dimension of our relationship, because at your nearest branch you will enjoy direct contact with your advisor, as well as wider access to the bank's expertise, services and advice.

By the end of 2024, new agencies will open in Geneva, Zurich, and Lugano to be even closer to you.

Your advisors on the road
If you work in the Swiss Jura and your schedule means that you can't easily come by to see us at a branch, please don't go out of your way! Our fleet of advisors on the road will meet you in Vallorbe, Les Verrières, Le Locle, or Boncourt, to offer you all the services and advantages of a local bank

Our mission and values

At Crédit Agricole next bank, we believe that the value of a bank lies above all in its ability to understand its customers' needs and to act in their best interests. Life is not linear; our teams know this and adapt accordingly.

Understanding our customers today to better support them in the future lies at the very heart of our mission: Crédit Agricole next bank seeks to be there for everything that life can bring – the good times and the bad, the big needs and the small. 

Proactivity and agility are qualities that are in our employees’ DNA; they are proud to be part of the Crédit Agricole Group, which is active in 47 countries. We have always been pioneers in our approach and are constantly reinventing ourselves to continue to be valuable to our customers.

Human values above all

Proximity

Close to people, close to real life, people-focused, accessible.

Whatever the means of contact, the human element forms – more than ever – the very heart of our business. We cultivate close relationships with our customers, as well as with each other.

Engagement

The depth of commitment of our teams, their agility and their determination to never give up...

We come from different backgrounds, but share a common mindset: a desire to shake things up, to break the mould, and to build an agile bank together, with the common foundation of a committed workforce.

Sincerity

Honesty, straight talk, transparency, truthfulness.

We want to do business with honesty. We listen to our customers, advise them honestly, and inform them of the risks involved - a principle we apply just as much to our customers as we do to each other and to our service providers.

Responsability

Inspired by the Group's long-standing commitment and its raison d'être - "Acting every day in the interests of the customer and society" - we are determined to anchor our responsibility in all our activities, lines of business, and processes:

  • Ethical engagement
  • Societal engagement
  • Environmental engagement
