The Swiss National Bank chairman has resigned abruptly, bowing to a public uproar over his private currency deals.

Philipp Hildebrand's decision comes just as a Swiss parliamentary committee is preparing to grill him behind closed doors.

His resignation took effect immediately on Monday, Switzerland's central bank said in a brief statement.
