Crossborders AG was established in 1990 by Barbara Huwiler to provide expatriate advisory services for large Multinationals headquartered in Switzerland. The company has continued to develop and today provides a wide range of advisory services to private clients, corporate multinationals and property owners throughout Switzerland.

Located in Zürich‘s city center, just a short walk from Bellevue, Crossborders remains independent and Barbara continues to run the business on a day-to-day basis together with a team of full-time Swiss professional consultants.


The relationship with many of our clients has been longstanding and key clients have been with us since 1990. We have had considerable experience across many business sectors and whether you are a Global Multinational or a Hedge Fund moving to Switzerland, we have the experience and capabilities, to ensure your successful transition to Switzerland.


After nearly thirty years of advising clients we have considerable experience in dealing with a variety of situations and typically consult several hundred clients each year. Our processes are well established; constantly delivering results in a transparent and professional manner. Often consulting just at the Executive Board level of companies we have the experience and reputation for finding solutions where others cannot.

The Swiss-German part of Switzerland is renowned for being a tight-knit business community, where insider knowledge and private networks take considerable time to develop. As a client of ours you benefit significantly from our experience, networks and reputation.


When many of our clients return to us from other assignments around the world or experienced international clients arrive for the first time in Switzerland, the common thread is their appreciation for the unique service they received from us. Their appreciation reflects the company’s philosophy of always making the extra effort to help the client and thinking ahead for them. The combination of a high degree of personalized service, a focus on quality and a Swiss professionalism define what we stand for.

Independent advice, honesty and personal integrity are of the utmost importance for Crossborders. They are part of the foundations of our service and allow each customer and supplier to place their trust in us.

We do not accept commissions from third parties and there are no conflicts of interest surrounding our advice.
