Compare pillar 3 solutions


The private pension is the third pillar of the Swiss retirement system called the "three-pillar concept". There are plenty of options to invest your savings. Both banks and insurance companies offer appropriate solutions. In addition to the conventional, fixed-interest pillar 3a bank account, banks also offer so-called fund accounts for investors willing to take more risks. If you are interested in both saving money and being covered against risks such as death or incapacity for work due to illness or injury, then third-pillar insurance products might be the right choice. Investments into any of the pillar 3a products may be fully deducted from your taxable income up to the maximum annual contribution as set by law. Private retirement savings are important to maintain one's desired standard of living in retirement. And yet, a large part of the Swiss population starts planning their retirement late, insufficiently or incompletely.
