In this, the 20th anniversary of Swiss Style Magazine, Swiss Style Broadcast is cast to be a new audio-visual channel featuring interviews with visionary thinkers and Swiss and global world-class leaders of industry and finance. Broadcast is conceived to complement rather than duplicate the articles in our magazine. Co-produced and co-branded with Geneva-based Dukascopy Bank, Broadcast shares the same production values as Swiss Style magazine, the same global outlook and the same attention to detail. John François Béguin — Chairman
