Swiss President Eveline Widmer- Schlumpf said the surprise regisgnation of Philipp Hildebrand didn’t leave a “vacuum’ at the Swiss National Bank.
‘‘We have an interim president,’’ Widmer-Schlumpf said at a briefing at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, today, referring to Thomas Jordan. People I met today ‘‘regretted the departure of Hildebrand’’ because ‘‘he was much appreciated. There were no concerns expressed that it weakened the SNB. I was positively surprised today.’’
She also said that ‘‘it’s a good sign’’ that the SNB is ‘‘considered this stable.’’
