Could’ve bought a duplex for 1820 US$ a month lol idk what u can do in Switzerland though

Can’t buy anything under a mil and you need a 20% downpayment which is impossible to get in your 20s. (Basically 200k downpayment for a 1br apartment), and you finance the remaining 800. And then you never fully own it otherwise you’re hit with hefty taxes. I would say that 85%+ of the country rents. At least the interest rates are very low close to 0%

How do you think your company is faring the new market conditions, and do you think the measures taken have been fair? So far at KPMG no layoffs, but no bonus or merit increases.
