Swiss pension plans are changing – your views

This post is also available in: Deutsch

Swiss “1e” pension plans allow individuals to choose their own savings investments from a pool of pre-defined investment choices for contributions paid on earnings above CHF 126’900 a year. These plans face change in 2016. These changes are likely to make these plans more attractive to employers and result in changes to current employer pension funds. You can find more details in the overview below.

If you represent an employer or pension fund, whether that is in fund management, HR or finance, we’d like to hear your views on these plans. This will help you and our other corporate and pension fund clients and contacts make decisions about them. The short survey is currently available in English and German and should take around 5 minutes to complete.

English: 1e pension plan survey

Deutsch: Umfrage über 1e Vorsorgepläne

Please note:

  • The survey will only ask questions based on your knowledge today.
  • Some pages are skipped depending on the answers you give.
  • The survey is anonymous, but by including your email address at the end we can ensure you get the results as soon as they are available.
