Switzerland has knocked Singapore off its perch as the world’s top-ranked destination for expatriates.
The nation -- home to some of the biggest private banks, commodity traders and pharmaceuticals companies -- was judged the best place to live and work, according to a study published on Thursday by HSBC Holdings Plc. Switzerland jumped from No. 8 last year as it garnered top marks for its earning potential and stability.
