Basic requirement

If you own a business or work as a company executive and earn more than CHF 129,060, you and your company qualify for an individual 1e executive pension solution from Agilis 1e Collective Foundation.

Key features of the 1e executive pension solution

The 1e executive pension solution is named after Art. 1e BVV2, on which it is based. The solution can be characterized by three key features: investments, insurance and tax optimization.

Investments
The law provides some flexibility in selecting an individual strategy for investments. Pension account holders at affiliated enterprises can choose from nine of up to ten possible investment strategies, picking the option that best suits their personal risk profile and investment horizon. The foundation provides access to extensive customization and professional asset management with Bank Vontobel Ltd as its asset manager.

Insurance
Agilis 1e Collective Foundation provides many ways to fine-tune the pension plan for each affiliated company. For example, death and disability benefits and the retirement savings process can be perfectly coordinated with the basic pension fund and adjusted to reflect actual needs.

Tax optimization
Pension account holders and companies receive tax breaks on regular and extra contributions to pension funds and benefit from transferring assets from companies to individuals through wages and dividends instead of just through dividends.

Countless benefits for business owners

  • 1e solutions are an attractive alternative to increasingly unappealing full-insurance solutions that have been hit particularly hard by zero and negative interest rates
  • 1e solutions do not require plan members to make top-up contributions if they leave the company
  • Protects the balance sheets of IFRS reporters since there is no need to set aside provisions for pension obligations

Countless benefits for pension account holders

  • Every plan member / pension scheme has their own personal pension portfolio. All contributions – whether regular or extra – are credited in full to the personal pension portfolio
  • Full return upon death: accumulated retirement capital (including extra contributions) is paid out to the survivors in full
  • In contrast to traditional pension funds, plan members can withdraw their entire retirement capital upon leaving the company
  • For capital withdrawals: securities can be transferred to a personal portfolio and do not have to be sold in down markets
