Double Your Pay in Switzerland

Higher salaries, lower taxes lure European treasury pros, who have seen few raises since 2008

European treasurers looking to boost their earnings after years of static pay could do worse than relocate to Switzerland, a recent survey by U.K.-based treasury search firm MR Recruitment has revealed.

The survey, which attracted responses from 615 participants worldwide, found that the average base salary in the U.K. for group treasurers, as the treasurer is known there, was £120,777 ($199,344), with an average total compensation of £165,047 ($272,399). In comparison, group treasurers in Switzerland can expect to earn a base salary of 235,480 Swiss francs ($265,551) and a total package of 306,296 Swiss francs ($345,410).
