ZURICH May 11 Britain will be a crucial market
for Switzerland's banks and insurers even after it leaves the
European Union, Swiss Finance Minister Ueli Maurer said on
"The UK, England, outside of the EU remains for Switzerland
and the Swiss financial centre one of the most important
actors," Maurer said at a banking conference.
Earlier at the conference, Julius Baer Chief
Executive Boris Collardi said Brexit opens the door for a deal
covering financial services between Britain and Switzerland,
which is not a member of the EU.
