UBS Outlook Switzerland
UBS Outlook Switzerland – Pension provision and succession planning
Switzerland's pension system is under pressure. Longer life expectancy combined with interest rates that have remained low for some years are making it difficult to keep the promises made with regard to retirement pensions. The aim of a comprehensive review must be to maintain Switzerland's three-pillar system (AHV, pillar 2, pillar 3), without retirees having to accept intolerable cuts and likewise without the working generation having to pay unreasonable contributions to support the retired generation. "We need to take care of our tried and tested pension system with its three pillars," stresses Lukas Gaehwiler, CEO UBS Switzerland. In UBS Outlook Switzerland the economists of the Chief Investment Office (CIO) will be analyzing possible scenarios and any consequences for individuals and the economy. We will also be highlighting the ten points that businesspeople should bear in mind if they want to hand over their company to the next generation or sell it to potential external buyers.
Besides analyses of the real estate and financial markets, the supplement Investing in Switzerland includes an assessment by UBS analysts of the Swiss equity and bond markets.
