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."

The risk of a large-scale military confrontation between the US and Iran has faded. As we said last week, neither side seems to want a war. But Iran was expected to retaliate after the US army killed General Soleimani in a targeted strike ordered by Donald Trump. And Iran did indeed take action, although it was more a matter of saving face. Iran almost certainly made sure that no American lives were lost, as that would probably have put both countries on a warpath...
Last year ended on a positive note for geopolitics, as a truce was reached in the US-China trade war. However, 2020 has started with an increase in tensions in the Middle East. Once again, Donald Trump was in the middle of it all and played a key role in the fresh hostilities against Iran, a country that has regularly been a target of Trump's threats since he came to power...
