    After reading the many reviews from other forum members I thought it was time to post my experience with a particular bank named CIM Bank.Swiss banks are the most trusted around the world because of their stability. That is why I did not have second thoughts when I entrusted my private banking needs with CIM Bank.For the past 4 years, I have utilized the various services CIM has to offer private individuals like myself.

    Although I may be one of their hundreds or thousands of clients, I still notice the personal touch every time I make a transaction with them. I do not feel like I am only part of their statistics. This holds true to their belief that every client is unique and has individual banking requirements.I have always been on the lookout for a bank that can provide me with the most reliable online service and CIM Bank did not disappoint. They can do fast online transactions through their home banking system which can be accessed via mobile phone or via a home or office computer.

    Online transactions can include checking account balances, making online payments for various merchants worldwide, find transfers and reloading debit cards.Another great perk is their video conferencing service in which you can get in touch with one of their private bankers via webcam. This is very convenient especially when I have several inquiries that I need answers to right away or I have transactions that need immediate attention. This is also very convenient when I need to confirm things regarding my investments, such as stocks and bonds. As they make online trading possible, getting consultation through video conferencing can be very helpful.

    The CIM bank website and online banking site has a very user friendly interface that is not intimidating. The site can be switched to various languages such as Spanish, Italian, French and Portuguese, but they all show the same user-friendly interface. Online transactions are very fast and reliable. If you encounter any problem at all, they have a prominent client support button online that will link you via email, live chat, or phone callback to one of their representatives to assist you.Aside from personal and commercial accounts, they also offer various options for financial services including financial investment counseling, asset management, multi-currency accounts, credit cards and debit cards.

    One of the reasons why I wanted a bank that can provide a comprehensive online banking service is because I am always traveling. This also means I do a lot of non-cash transactions locally and abroad. Thankfully, the bank offers Visa and MasterCard, as well as American Express. Some banks are only linked to Visa, while some are only linked to MasterCard. I love the fact that they are linked to both, although I prefer Visa more because it has more perks and more widely accepted in most establishments worldwide.They also have the Swiss Bankers Travel Cash card which is a Prepaid card that is very convenient for traveling. With this card, it is easy to budget my travels as I simply load it with the amount of money intended for my specific travel. Reloading the card from my personal savings account to the Travel Cash card can also be done online. It can use it to withdraw local currencies in any ATM machine, use it like a credit or debit card to pay for goods and services, as well as pay for online purchases. It also has the highest level of security as it can be replaced worldwide, with the remaining balance still intact in case the card is lost, stolen or damaged. The card is a separate entity from your personal bank account; even if it is stolen, you?ll be safe from identity theft.

    All swiss banks require a personal visit, you won't be allowed to open an account there without visiting them and deposit some amount with them. I don't know about this particular bank but they seem legit.

    What's so terrible with traveling to the bank? You will get a better service with most of them when you meet face to face.

    Something went wrong in the review above, swift code for this bank is CIMMCHGG and you can find their opening hours here they require personal visit in order to open an account. Seychelles, Belize and other similar offshore jurisdictions are not accepted by them. You will want to incorporate a European company and best would be a Swiss company.

    Someone had luck to open an account with them or is it a bullshit bank among many in the Swiss?

    Most people don't wont or can't visit the bank because of privacy and they are lazy. In the time of Internet people expect everything can be handled by Skype, E-Mail or online. However, the best deals and best offshore banking I found by visiting the country and their banks and agents. There was for a long time ago I spend 1 months on an Island with initial contact to PWC, they introduced me to a wealth of business people that were able to help me with what I was looking for but also something I didn't know about.

    I'm able to travel to switzerland to get the account. Do you know if they are good for wealth banking management (private investment of larger sums in property) or are they more for the small street people.

    If you know someone that live in Switzerland do you think you could ask him to go to the bank and open an account if he takes my documents with him?

    You don't need to visit them, an account can be opened by video conferencing. I am about to open an account for a client there in the next 1 - 2 weeks. They are very responsive, and one of the Swiss banks that offer the anonymous Swiss Bankers Travel Cash card.
