Moving to US soon - Sell shares now due to capital gain tax?

Hi MP community,

I am seeking for some advice from the tax experts regarding capital gain taxes:

I will move to the US in a few weeks, and I own shares of my company via ESPP. I anyway plan to sell most of them and now I am thinking if it would be smart to sell them before I move to the US, as in Switzerland there is no capital gain tax (for most private investors) and in the US you have at least 10-15% (or more) of capital gain tax.

Am I thinking correctly here?

Many thanks for you thoughts!

Maybe double check the tax treaty, depends how they tax the revenue from the transition year.

(That said for ESPP, it’s likely a good idea to sell early anyway, and move to a more diversified investment as soon as allowed).
