The individual executive pension plan

1e pension solutions with LGT: Individual, flexible and attractive

If you do not just want to receive an annual pension fund statement, but also wish to have an active say in how your pension fund is invested, 1e pension solutions are an attractive option. Executive pension solutions offer a wide range of options, in particular for high-earning employees, the self-employed and company management members.

  • Individual - you decide which level of risk and investment strategy is right for you
  • Flexible - you can make adjustments at any time
  • Attractive - you benefit from attractive and effective investment solutions, despite the low interest rate environment

Your pension assets will be deposited with LGT on your behalf by one of the Liberty pension foundations and invested by LGT in accordance with the strategy you have chosen. Our experts look forward to hearing from you.

Who can take advantage of 1e pension solutions at LGT?

If your income is between CHF 129 060 and CHF 860 400, the executive solution is geared to you.

1e pension plans insure salary components that are above 1.5 times the upper BVG salary limit. Are you self-employed? Then you are generally free to choose your own pension fund and can opt directly for a 1e pension plan. But this solution is also geared to you if you are a high-earning employee with an annual salary in the above-mentioned range. We recommend that company management members and company owners also consider this pension solution for their employees.

What are the advantages of a 1e pension plan compared to the standard 2nd Pillar?

One of the biggest advantages of the 1e pension plan is your freedom of choice. While the investment strategies for standard pension funds (2nd Pillar) are pre-defined, the 1e pension plan enables you to choose between different investment and risk strategies. In addition, there is no redistribution due to unfavorable demographic developments. Like for Pillar 3a, the money you save belongs to you alone.

With 1e pension solutions, you can choose your investment strategy based on your personal risk tolerance. Various risk profiles are available to you, and you always have full transparency with regard to the performance, returns and management fees of your pension portfolio. With traditional pension solutions (e.g. collective foundations), this option is largely absent. You also benefit from the fact that voluntary purchases can be deducted from your taxable income.
