Flexible vested benefit solutions

A vested benefit account secures your occupational benefits when there is gap between your departure from the pension fund and your admission to a new employee benefits institution. We help you put a clear benefits strategy and a matching investment solution in place for any planned interruption of your employment.

Exclusive parking space for your vested benefits

Thanks to our vested benefits foundations PensFree and Independent, our clients benefit from tax-privileged advantages for up to five years after reaching regular retirement age.

  • Vested benefit accounts mean independent choice of investments and hence greater diversification.
  • A separately managed vested benefit custody account offers more flexibility when it comes to withdrawals in the 2nd pillar on retirement.
  • No cross-subsidisation of survivors’ benefits. In the event of death, the pension assets are disbursed to the heirs in full.

Facts at a glance

  • Two foundations for an optimal structure
  • Foundation headquarters in the Canton of Schwyz
  • No tax on earnings or wealth tax
  • Can be maintained until the age of 70
  • Flexible benefit structure in the event of death
