Investor flows into CHF slow further in September

Arne Lohmann Rasmussen, Chief Analyst, Danske Bank

Safe-haven flows into Switzerland slowed significantly in September as the foreign currency jumped to a record CHF429.3bn up CHF8.5bn over the month. Hence, the Swiss central bank continued to intervene in the market in September even if we adjust for currency changes. However, the inflow is much more benign versus May and June time when the currency reserve jumped CHF68bn and CHF60bn, respectively. All in all, it seems that the removal of some of the tail risks from the euro zone has removed much of the need for investors to buy safe-haven currencies such as the CHF.

With only one more employment report to go before the election on November 6th, the numbers will surely be scrutinized and made into talking points by both campaigns over the next several weeks.
