The long-term interest rate trend 

Monetary policy remains expansive but yield movement is likely

Swiss interest rates remain low by historical and international standards, although we expect international interest rate pressure to drive bond yields slightly higher as early as the next few months. Conversely, monetary policy is the dominant factor at the short end of the yield curve, and the Swiss National Bank (SNB) will probably have to continue its very expansive policy until at least 2017 out of consideration for exchange rates. What is more, the entire yield curve is benefiting from the franc's status as a safe haven, as investors are willing to accept record-low interest rates in return for the safety of the franc. There is nevertheless a possibility that the currently high central bank money supply will drive up inflation somewhat in the longer term. Together with more robust global growth, this is likely to lead to higher interest rates in the coming years.
