COVID pandemic support loans

For our corporate clients, in particular SMEs and the self-employed, your advisers are available for tailor-made assistance.

BCGE operates on behalf of its corporate clients impacted by the pandemic in accordance with the cantonal "memorandum of understanding" signed between the State, the FAE and the Geneva commercial banks on 17 March 2020: "Covid-19: the State and the commercial banks of the Geneva financial centre unite against the coronavirus". This commitment aims more specifically:

  • to facilitate and accelerate the formalities for obtaining secured loans;
  • to show flexibility towards companies whose difficulties are directly linked to the health situation;
  • to consider deferral of amortisation on a goodwill basis.

BCGE is closely linked to the business community and has experience in finding suitable solutions for the client entrepreneurs it knows well. This close relationship enables the bank to customise support according to both the profile of the business model and the nature of the specific damage caused by the crisis due to containment.

In addition, in accordance with the measures decided by the Federal Council, corporate clients can submit an application for financial support to their principal bank until 31 July 2020, provided the criteria of the Confederation are met. Our teams are available to process your application (see procedure). Our teams respond to your requests according to the special procedure that you can find here.
