Our proven expertise
Our pension solutions are designed with one thing in mind: how they fit into your wealth strategy. We can help you harness the full potential of Swiss “Pillar 2” and “Pillar 3” plans (i.e. occupational and personal retirement plans) with a view to growing and securing your wealth. Voluntary occupational pension plans and vested benefit accounts, for instance, can be used to better structure your wealth and make significant tax savings.
Turning your income into wealth
The strategic value of pension plans lies in their potential for moving some of your wealth into tax-protected vehicles. For example, voluntary occupational pension contributions can provide advantages over more traditional savings vehicles in terms of both tax reductions and higher after-tax yields.
A made-to-measure management approach
Under Swiss occupational pension law, you can have some control over how your pension assets are managed according to your particular situation. This is similar to how a conventional portfolio is managed. Over the long term, these vehicles can be used to help you strike the right balance between retirement savings, other savings and non-financial assets.
"A personalised approach to managing your pension assets can help you to effectively structure your wealth and fine-tune your asset allocation. By making voluntary occupational pension contributions, for instance, you can reduce your tax bill and increase your retirement savings at the same time."

To go deeper
If you have an occupational pension, you need to find out what impact the reduction in the conversion rate will have on your retirement. If the conversion rate is lowered to 6%, for instance, this would reduce your annual pension by around 12%. So what can you do to make up for this shortfall?
Japan’s Q3 GDP has been revised down, with a worse-than-expected quarter-on-quarter contraction of 0.6%. This slide was in part driven by a series of natural disasters – includ-ing typhoons and an earthquake – although recent economic indicators already point to an uptick in growth in Q4.
