In March, the Swiss National Bank kick-started a rate cutting cycle, becoming the first central bank overseeing the world’s 10 most heavily traded currencies to lower rates for the first time since November 2020. It joined counterparts in Latin America and other emerging markets that have been speeding up rate cuts as the threat of inflation has eased.
