Since its foundation, the Swiss National Bank has published banking statistical data. The publication known today as 'Banks in Switzerland' was initially published as a multi-year publication and then as a yearbook under the title 'Das schweizerische Bankwesen' (Swiss Banking).

This list comprises digital reproductions of the printed publications. The digital text, which has been captured using optical character recognition (OCR) software, contains errors; only the on-screen or printed image can be relied upon to provide a precise record of the content.

Languages
'Das schweizerische Bankwesen' (Swiss Banking) was published only in German until 1972 (with the exception of 1920), in German and French from 1973, and additionally in English from 2005.
