Act wisely. Decide boldly.
Act wisely. Decide boldly.
Retirement pensions are of an extremely high social relevance. There is however a significant brake on reform that constitutes an increasing problem. With this publication, we wish to address this topic from various angles and thus make a solid contribution to the discussion on the evolution of the Swiss pension system.
Besides the overarching topic of the retirement pensions’ reform, we also explain how sustainability is integrated in asset investment, where the digitalization process stands in the world of pensions and how pensions can suddenly become an issue in the context of a transaction.
Let yourselves be inspired by our thoughts and take part in the discussion on sustainable retirement pensions which the next generations can also be proud of.

The Swiss retirement pension system
The Swiss retirement pension system is based on the three-pillar principle. The 1st pillar corresponds to the old-age and survivors insurance (AHV), the 2nd pillar to the occupational benefits (pension fund) and the 3rd pillar to voluntary personal pension planning.
The AHV aims to secure an appropriate standard of living and is compulsory. This includes the disability insurance (IV), the compensation for loss of earnings during service (EO) and in case of maternity as well as the unemployment insurance (ALV).
