  • Why BDO


Sharing mindsets - shaping the future

Our objectives are geared towards sustainable, shared impact. Proximity, which has no single definition, plays a central role in all our client relationships. It's our clients who decide what proximity to BDO should mean for them and what it should look like in the context of our working relationship. Is local, physical proximity important to you? With 35 locations, we have the densest network of offices in Switzerland. Your personal contact person at BDO will support you on a long-term basis, coordinate your requirements and exchange information with you - by whatever means you wish. Are you looking for support from professionals who understand your market environment and can deliver qualified work without any input from you? We enable you to focus on your core business, and combine specialist knowledge with industry expertise. Do you have an international market presence?

Purpose, values and conduct


As the list of economic challenges grows, new perspectives and practical solutions are required. Companies need to meet stakeholders' high expectations on the one hand, and regulatory requirements on the other. In this complex environment, it’s all the more important for BDO to understand clients’ needs and to identify solutions that address them on a business and personal level. In this way, we aim to offer our clients assurance, help them achieve economic success, and support their sustainable development.

We strive to be a reliable partner and to create value for our clients, our people and the communities in which we live. Achieving sustained economic success - whether for our clients, our environment or ourselves - is not BDO's sole objective. Success should come from responsible conduct, because only then can we ensure positive and sustainable corporate development.

We can only meet these requirements if we – always and in every situation – comply with the applicable laws, regulatory requirements and our internal policies.

However, BDO's Code of Conduct is not just about complying with laws, regulations and labour law directives. Beyond these, it sets out clear guidelines for responsible, ethical behaviour that is based on integrity.
