Luzerner Zeitung: Money should become "tangible" again

Published July 2021 | by Maurizio Minetti. Banker Karl Reichmuth is entering the market with a company that wants to offer a kind of private currency alternative. Anyone who hoards money in a savings account will become poorer in the long term. Because of low interest rates, banks charge so-called “credit balance fees” for larger amounts. So their capital slowly evaporates in the long term. “The money we have today has lost its value preservation function,” says Daniel Stüssi. The 47-year-old has headed RealUnit Schweiz AG, based in Baar, since April. This young company has a vision, as Stüssi explains: “Our goal is to be a simple investment solution for long-term wealth preservation.”
