Swiss Money Map

Monitoring ATM and Bank Branch Locations in Switzerland

What is the Swiss Money Map?

The Swiss Money Map (SMM) provides a spatial analysis of cash access in Switzerland. We map and monitor automated teller machines (ATM) and bank branch locations in Switzerland employing an interactive dashboard. We combine these data with household characteristics to provide information on how far Swiss households have to travel to reach the closest cash access point. We further calculate how much time on average it takes to get cash.

Our aim is to provide an analytical tool to monitor cash access points. This is particularly relevant in the era of decreasing transactional cash usage and increasing costs of cash withdrawals, respectively. We therefore hope to contribute to a comprehensive understanding of optimal cash circulation.

The Swiss Money Map is a project of the Center for Financial Services Innovation at the University of St. Gallen.
