Swiss franc loans and other banking products
CHF loans and other banking products.
In the mid-2000s banks leveraged their privileged position to start granting CHF-denominated consumer loans. Loan agreements contained unfair clauses that were non-negotiable despite being critical to the amounts of instalments paid by consumers.
Banks engaged in similar unfair practices by offering so-called saving insurance policies, charging disproportionately high fees for account closure. One other equally abusive instrument involved insurance for low down payments on loans, where banks shifted the cost of down-payment insurance on customers to cover their own business risk.
