About The Swiss Helvetia Fund, Inc.

The Fund (www.swzfund.com) is a non-diversified, closed-end investment company
seeking long-term capital appreciation through investment in equity and
equity-linked securities of Swiss companies. Its shares are listed on the NYSE
under the symbol "SWZ." The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by
investing generally in Swiss equity and equity-linked securities that are
traded on a Swiss stock exchange, traded at the pre-bourse level of one or
more Swiss stock exchanges, traded through a market maker or traded over the
counter in Switzerland. The Fund also may invest in Swiss equity and
equity-linked securities of Swiss companies that are traded on other major
European stock exchanges.

Closed-end funds, unlike open-end funds, are not continuously offered.
Typically, shares of closed-end funds are sold in the open market through a
stock exchange. Shares of closed-end funds frequently trade at a discount to
net asset value. The price of the Fund's shares is determined by a number of
factors, several of which are beyond the control of the Fund. Therefore, the
Fund cannot predict whether its shares will trade at, below or above net asset
value.

The Swiss Helvetia Fund, Inc. (the "Fund") is managed by Schroder Investment
Management North America Inc.
