SNB's Jordan: Franc is highly valued, SNB has scope to cut rates further

The coronavirus has been a factor in Swiss franc's recent appreciation and the currency remains highly valued, Swiss National Bank Chairman Thomas Jordan told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung in an interview and added that the bank has scope to cut rates further.
