High fees for paying and sending money abroad are frustrating. Alpian puts an end to those exorbitant commissions and unfavourable rates by offering foreign exchange capabilities with one of the lowest rates in the Swiss market: 0.20% on weekdays.

This nominal markup isn’t about profit; it’s solely to cover the costs of the exchange process. At Alpian, we believe in charging only when a service requires our expert intervention.
