Is there any way (any not prohibitively inefficient way) for me to use the service from Switzerland with my prospective Swiss Francs? Or for anyone outside the US for that matter? Thankies!

Yes! Antigravity Investments is open to over 170 countries around the world through Interactive Brokers and additional brokers coming soon. We are one of the first global robo-advisors (servicing everywhere instead of a specific country or region). We also provide advising and semi-automated investment management to EAs to provide certain features while we expand international support, such as support for Ireland domiciled ETFs which may be more tax advantageous for European investors. Non-Swiss securities might require a different currency to purchase other than Francs, but Interactive Brokers does offer built in currency exchange at excellent rates.

Awesome! Does it make a difference with which Swiss bank I’ll have a bank account? Because I haven’t signed up for one yet.

I don't think so, Interactive Brokers supports many different account funding options: https://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/software/am/am/funding/depositingfunds.htm and all banks should support wire transfers. It's important to note that we will likely be supporting additional brokers in the next few months, including DriveWealth, which has lower fees than IB. This will be relevant if the account size is small, and IB will be better if the account size is large.
