New to Canton Zug – sound advice at ZugerKB
To be honest, in my previous job I just dealt with about a handful of real estate financing transactions for clients. I specialize mainly in investments and pension-related topics.

Dream homes in Canton Zug: in huge demand
It didn't take long for the first requests for financing to arrive. The financing itself is rarely the challenge, but the market is. Residential property in Canton Zug is very much in demand and the property portfolio is relatively slim. There are not many new-builds in Canton Zug which, in terms of area is the smallest canton in Switzerland – or third-smallest if you factor in the demi-cantons. So space is at a premium, and properties sell like hot cakes. On average, it takes 40 days to sell a property – which is an absolute record for Switzerland. So it's all the more important to have an agile and reliable partner at your side who knows the market inside out. As advisors at Zuger Kantonalbank, we all have an extensive network and the necessary expertise for arranging financing in our canton. Every second property in the canton is financed through us. We specialize in helping our clients with an international background – some of whom are newcomers to the canton – to purchase their dream property.
