Please go to Humans Are Free to review this entire list of banks including the Swiss National Bank after scrolling down the list.
Without accepting at face value the above list of banks alleged to be owned or controlled by the Rothschild family, we’ve decided to zero in on one central bank to verify whether or not the claim Rothschild’s have a controlling interest in the Swiss National Bank (SNB) is even a legitimate claim. The point of all this is to keep your eyes on the central banks because everything else including the show between Israel and Iran is theater for those who are plugged into their respective media sources most of which are owned by these same banks. To get things started here, maybe it will help visualize in our minds the national debt owed to central banks, so let’s take New Zealand as an example. Every New Zealander is contributing to paying $112 per second on their national debt to central bankers.
The Swiss National Bank (SNB) is the central bank of Switzerland, and is therefore responsible for the monetary policy of the nation of Switzerland and also for the issuing of Swiss franc banknotes. The SNB can be located on the list of alleged banks controlled by Rothschild interests from the Humans Are Free website linked above. The SNB is otherwise known as: German: Schweizerische Nationalbank; French: Banque nationale suisse; Italian: Banca nazionale svizzera; Romansh: Banca naziunala svizra, which are the four official languages of the country. The SNB is an aktiengesellschaft under special regulations, and has two head offices, one is in Bern and the other one in Zurich, Switzerland. The Bank of International Settlements (BIS) is partially owned by SNB.
On December 28, 2017 the Bank of Israel hosted the Chairman of the Governing Board of the Swiss National Bank (SNB), Thomas J. Jordan. The Chairman of the Governing Board of the SNB held meetings with the Governor of the Bank of Israel and members of the Israel’s Monetary Committee. In these meetings, Swiss and Israeli bankers “exchanged views and opinions on developments in the Israeli and Swiss economies, and monetary policy considerations in the two countries“. The Governor of the Bank of Israel, Dr. Karnit Flug, said, “Despite the numerous differences, we found that there are quite a few similar developments and considerations facing decision makers in the two countries. I was happy for the opportunity to host the Chairman of the Governing Board of the Swiss National Bank in Israel, to learn about monetary policy in Switzerland and the challenges facing the SNB, and to present developments and policy measures in Israel.”
It should be remembered that the establishment of the State of Israel is closely linked with Switzerland: The First Zionist Congress was held in Basel in 1897. In addition, 15 other congresses out of a total of 22 were also held in Switzerland. Before the establishment of the State of Israel in Palestine, Switzerland maintained a consulate in Jerusalem (accredited to the British Mandate) and a consular agency in Tel Aviv. It recognized the new state in 1949 and opened a consulate in Tel Aviv. This consulate was upgraded to an embassy in 1958.
In October, 2016 a commercial delegation from the Tehran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture to Geneva, Switzerland, met with Switzerland’s parliamentary officials among many other officials for the purpose of “heralding in a better future for Iranian-Swiss banking ties“. A 40-strong Iranian business delegation visited Switzerland representing more than 30 private sector enterprises from Iran. This Iranian delegation said they welcome more Swiss companies to work inside the country of Iran. If Rothschild banking interests hold shares of SNB privately, that would mean they also have interests in Iranian banking and business infrastructure while simultaneously investing in Israel? Switzerland’s Reyl Bank is already opening bank accounts in Dubai and Geneva for Iranians.
Doesn’t it seem just little bit odd Israel and Iran are at each other’s throats in public making the world think they are on the verge of war almost daily considering the constant media attention either with Iran threatening Israel, or Israel threatening Iran? Yet, if we look deep enough, and if the list of banks is even half way accurate off the Humans Are Free website, why is it that the Iranians are banking wth Rothschild banking interests in Switzerland? Even Israelis are banking in Switzerland with millions of shekels stashed away in Swiss banks. The SNB is both publicly and privately owned. The 26 Cantons, which are the Swiss states, own 26 shares collectively in SNB, and there are 2,196 private shareholders of SNB stock as of December, 2017.
So any idea that central banks are not privately owned, should be put to rest considering the proof here that 2,196 shareholders in SNB as of December, 2017 represent private interests. One of the principal shareholders of SNB is Theo Siegert from Düsseldorf, Germany who is German and not Swiss. Siegert owns 6,070 shares or 6.07 percent of SNB shares. It was only recently that Theo Siegert’s stake in SNB doubled when he “turned a bet on SNB into $25.3 million.” You don’t just bet with that amount of money, especially in central banking.
SNB stock gained 250% in value over 2016 and 2017 and Theo Siegert just happened to “bet” did he? Shareholders in SNB experienced the price of a share in Swiss National Bank in August, 2016 rise above SFr3,000 ($3,143) for the first time — more than doubled. When you are in the inner circle of central banking you don’t make bets, you make well calculated deliberate decisions with your fellow central banking insiders. That is the profile on only one private shareholder of SNB, that leaves 2,195 more private investors. Why SNB in this report decided to list only Theo Siegert as a private shareholder is anyone’s guess. Maybe it is because he holds the most shares in SNB?
Baron Eric de Rothschild made 19.6-million Swiss francs ($20.9-million Canadian) in full-year net profit for the financial year ending in March, 2012 and manages assets of 18.5-billion Swiss francs compared to 1.823-trillion francs for Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS) and 803.3-billion francs for Credit Suisse. It is hard to believe with that much influence in banking in Switzerland that Rothschild banking interests don’t hold shares in SNB? Or would any of Rothschild’s connected banking executives in Switzerland who are on the board of anyone of Rothschild’s diverse financial interests hold shares of SNB? What if we discovered a very wealthy Israeli billionaire holding shares in SNB? Or a wealthy Iranian?
Contrary to the Real Currencies blog who states that all European banks are publicly owned, Real Currencies overlooked the Switzerland National Bank which is predominantly privately owned.
The SNB has an $88 billion portfolio of US equities as of November, 2017. That amount equals about 0.3% of the total US stock market. The SNB holds more than $1 billion worth of seven companies: Apple, Alphabet (which owns Google), Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon, Johnson & Johnson, and Exxon. Its $3 billion position in Apple equals “an ownership of 0.35% of the the company, larger than that held by Franklin Resources and Charles Schwab”. That position is worth over “$350 per person in Switzerland, enough to buy everyone in the country an Apple Watch”.
Unusual for a central bank, the SNB has 2,196 private shareholders as of December, 2017, so SNB must report earnings like a regular company. In 2017 it was an exceptional year making a huge profit of more than $20 billion in 2016, information Theo Siegert mentioned above probably had access to prior to a very profitable year. And isn’t it interesting that considering SNB’s investments mentioned above, that those same high tech companies depend on Israel for R&D to make them as successfully profitable as they are? How many wealthy Iranians opening up bank accounts with Swiss banks are invested in these high tech companies who depend on Israel for their R&D?
In the article below first published by Persia Digest, the Swiss National Bank and their Supervisory Authority are speeding up the process of issuing licenses for Iranian banks to open branches in Switzerland. When one country allows another country to open up branch banks it only means that funds will be transferred between the two countries. Branch banks are allowed to be opened up to penetrate host markets. Considering the constant agitation between Israel and Iran, one would think Switzerland would be a bit more diplomatic and tactful in their approach to Iran.
How is it then we have here the Switzerland National Bank, profiting enormously from investing in high tech companies that rely on Israel’s R&D into technology, while allowing Iran to open up branch banks in Switzerland with a bank controlled by Rothschild interests? Rothschild banking interests like Switzerland so much, that even Nat Rothschild ditches the UK for Switzerland to reduce his taxes.
Can we just think for a moment? Where do central banks get the money from like in the example of SNB to purchase shares of particular stocks? In this case SNB buying roughly $2.7 billion in Facebook stock? How is it possible for the economy to be doing well when central banks, and SNB is only one of many central banks, all purchasing and owning stocks like this? Who is going to argue that central banks aren’t running the economies like in Europe by printing money and then purchasing and owning these amounts of shares in these companies like Facebook?

What is a little known fact about Switzerland, perhaps for some readers, is that the world’s most expensive boarding school is located in Switzerland. The Institut Le Rosey, commonly referred to as Le Rosey or simply Rosey, is a boarding school in Rolle, Switzerland. It was founded by Paul-Émile Carnal in 1880 on the site of the 14th-century Château du Rosey in the town of Rolle in the Canton of Vaud. The Canton of Vaud owns one share of the Switzerland National Bank. It is one of the oldest boarding schools in Switzerland. Annual tuition for the Institut Le Rosey is around $157,000USD.
The Institut Le Rosey, with over 5,000 former students, has one of the most prestigious alumni registries in the world. Le Rosey has educated generations of dynastic families, including Hohenzollerns, Rothschilds, Metternichs, Borgheses, Hohenlohes, Rockefellers, Du Ponts and Radziwiłłs. The central banker’s private school located in Switzerland training the leaders of different countries? Other graduates from Le Rosey include the past Shah of Iran, Aga Khan IV (his wife is the daughter of the German Renate-Thyssen conglomerate), King Albert II of Belgium, Dodi Fayed and North Korea’s present leader Kim Jong-un.

Negotiating Iranian bank branches in Switzerland
(Persia Digest) – At a meeting with the Swiss Ambassador in Tehran, the CBI Chief requested the cooperation of the Swiss National Bank (SNB) and their Supervisory Authority to speed up the process of issuing licenses for Iranian banks to open branches in Switzerland.
At the meeting, Valiollah Seif expressed his pleasure about the banking ties between the two countries, and added: “Iranian banks work within the framework of international regulations and have taken constructive steps to conform to global standards.”
He continued: “Bank reforms are ongoing in two areas of “Standardizing banking operations and compliance with international regulations” and “Accounting standards and regulatory reform”.
The Swiss Ambassador to Iran, Markus Leitner, expressed his country’s interest in having banking ties with Iran and announced efforts to provide incentives for their banks to cooperate with Iranian banks.
He added: “Improved banking ties involve a clearer picture of the banking system in Iran and this meeting is a first step in the right direction.”
The Swiss Ambassador expressed satisfaction with the actions taken so far between the two countries, and said: “I will discuss issuing licenses for Iranian banks to open branches in Switzerland with our banking authorities.”
As reported by Persia Digest, Chief of Staff Mohammad Nahavandian traveled to Switzerland on 8 December 2017 and met with Swiss President Johann Niklaus Schneider-Ammann and bankers to discuss solutions for further banking ties and financial and monetary cooperation between the two countries.
While the US is sanctioning Iranian banks and preventing trade, Switzerland is doing just the opposite by initiating trade with Iran, allowing Iran to set up Iranian branch banks in Switzerland and developing closer ties by allowing Iranians to open up accounts with Switzerland banks. Why is it that Switzerland is at the center of what is going on between Iran and Israel at least as far as banking is concerned?
Note carefully how central bankers seem to get along fine from different countires – in Switzerland – but the countries they operate their central banks in are at each others throats threatening war and destruction? Wouldn’t it be an irony if Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu and Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani inadvertently have bank and trading accounts at the same bank in Switzerland? Or the weapons, drug and sex networks operating from their respective countries go through Swiss banks to launder their money?
The Switzerland National Bank (SNB) prints money out of thin air then purchases $2.7 billion in Facebook stock when Facebook depends on Israeli tech firms for R&D while SNB is speeding up the process of issuing licenses in Switzerland to allow Iran to open up branch banks in Switzerland? Israel and Iran can pelt stones at each other in public while leaders of both countries along with Rothschild private banking interests are cutting deals with private Swiss banking interests for Iran?

Switzerland recommends firms pursue Iran ties despite US sanctions

GENEVA: The Swiss government regrets the “deteriorating” situation regarding sanctions imposed by the United States on Iran, but recommends Swiss firms pursue their business relations with the Islamic Republic on an informed basis, it said on Thursday.
Companies doing business with Iran will be barred from the United States, President Donald Trump said on Tuesday, as new U.S. sanctions targeting dollars, metals trading, coal, industrial software and its auto sector took effect despite pleas from Washington’s allies.
The move follows Washington reneging on a 2015 deal to lift sanctions in return for curbs on Iran’s nuclear programme.
European countries, hoping to persuade Tehran to continue to respect the deal, have promised to try to lessen the blow of sanctions and to urge their firms not to pull out. But that has proved difficult: European companies have quit Iran, arguing that they cannot risk their U.S. business.
“U.S. decisions on sanctions do not affect the legal situation in Switzerland with regard to Iran,” said Fabian Maienfisch of the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO).
Renewed U.S. sanctions may affect Swiss firms that have business relations with Iran, however.
