Geneva founded in 2011

Overview

As a global center for finance and diplomacy, as well as the seat of numerous intergovernmental organizations, Geneva is truly a world-class city.

Geneva's economy, which includes a robust private-banking industry and strong finance and commodities-trading sectors, is primarily service oriented. Additionally, a number of multinational shipping, biopharma, industrial goods, chemicals, and electronics companies have headquarters there. Of course, Geneva also boasts a long history of watchmaking, and many world-renowned watch manufacturers still call the city home.

Geneva plays a major role in the automotive industry, hosting the annual Geneva Motor Show— a key international launching pad for auto manufacturers—in March. In the education sector, the University of Geneva is ranked regularly among the best universities in the world.

Geneva is the home of the European headquarters of the United Nations, as well as several UN agencies, such as the World Health Organization and the International Labour Organization. Many of Geneva's residents work for the intergovernmental organizations located in the city, such as the World Trade Organization, the World Economic Forum, and the International Committee of the Red Cross.

In short, Geneva's diverse mix of industries and international organizations offers unique opportunities and challenges. Our team would be delighted to help you learn more about them.
