Individual choice of investment strategy

The Federal Social Insurance Office (FSIO) has published on 26 March the outcome of the public consultation process on the new legal provisions regarding the choice of investment strategies, offered to insureds with a salary above 126,360 Swiss francs.

The project submitted for consultation proposes to anchor the principle of choice in the law and to reduce the workload required by international accounting standards for companies.

Trianon has promoted flexibility in the field of occupational benefits for many years and is pleased to note that, on the one hand, its opinions have been substantially taken into account and, on the other, that the majority of respondents to the consultation process are prepared to make a gesture in favour of multinational companies based in Switzerland.
