Monaco Daily News is preparing a report on banking in Monaco, with a special focus on charges faced by bank customers. The report has been inspired by correspondence from readers, but we would like to hear from others, too.

We are particularly interested in the following: minimum deposit required to open an account, fees for opening an account, monthly service fees for a current (checking) account, fees for international transfers, and fees to close an account.

Most of the banks in Monaco have not been forthcoming. All and any information received will be treated in the strictest confidence. Please write to me, Ian Brodie, The report will appear in early March.
