Swiss government bonds are somewhat difficult for individual investors to purchase; however, you can invest in a bond fund whose portfolio includes Swiss bonds. Purchasing shares in such a fund can provide you with a reliable source of interest payments.

Switzerland has always been considered a safe haven for financial investments. Swiss banks hold some of the largest deposits in the world because of their relative safety compared to the rest of the market. The Swiss government holds a neutral stance on most political issues, and therefore, there is very little interest rate risk associated with the Swiss franc. This means that the nation's government bonds provide a low-risk investment for your money.
