Swiss banks may tighten mortgage lending guidelines

ZURICH, March 20 (Reuters) - The Swiss Banking Association may tighten self-regulation rules on lending for investment in residential properties amid officials' concerns about overheating in the market, the bank lobby said on Wednesday.

Shortening amortisation periods and reducing loan-to-value ratios might be appropriate steps should consultations with authorities show a need to act, the group said, adding a task force would report its findings in the second quarter.
