According to the 2015 Natixis Global Asset Management CoreData Global Retirement Index (GRI), Switzerland is the best country to retire to. This was the second year Switzerland appeared in the study and was already placed on the first place. The GRI is an international instrument used to measure the sustainability of countries worldwide in terms of retirement expectations, needs and purposes. The GRI was launched three years ago and it classifies countries based on 20 performance indicators among which are material wellbeing, health, quality of life and financial status, all after retirement.
At the beginning of this month, Switzerland and Australia have signed a declaration that will enable both countries to introduce an automatic system for exchange of tax information. This is Switzerland’s first international agreement on exchange of tax information. The first step will be to create the legal base for collecting such information.
