A reflection of Paradeplatz, the symbolic centre of the Swiss banking industry, in the window of the headquarters of Switzerland's largest bank UBS. The Swiss banking industry holds an estimated 6,352 billion Swiss Francs (USD 7,000 billion) in assets, more than half of it foreign, benefiting from the country's famous banking secrecy laws. After being bailed out by the Swiss government following record losses, for a Swiss company, caused by excessive exposure to the U.S. sub-prime market, UBS was hit by a new scandal as a rogue trader lost in the region of USD 2.3 billion in unauthorised trading. In response Oswald Grubel, Group Chief Executive Officer at UBS, resigned in September 2011.
