Even if you’re not planning to retire for another 10 to 15 years, you still need to ask yourself some important questions today: How much money will I need? How can I safeguard my assets? What do I want to be able to afford after retirement?
Bettina and Markus E. also grappled with these same questions. When they thought about retirement, everything still seemed rather abstract and a long way off. But with a carefully considered strategy tailored to their needs and goals, they were able to optimize their wealth planning.

It was only once we realized how much purchasing power our cash savings were losing each year that we decided to act.
The couple E made 3 important decisions for their financial future.
Life expectancy in Switzerland continues to rise, so your money needs to last longer. Then there’s taxation: AHV, IV and occupational pensions must be declared and, in general, all of this money is subject to income tax. In addition, you may spend more money after you retire because you want to fulfill some life-long dreams, for instance. This is often the case in the first few years of retirement, and Bettina and Markus were no different – they went on a Caribbean cruise.
Together with their retirement planning advisor, Bettina and Markus E. drew up an investment plan tailored to their specific needs. They were then able to reduce the high level of their liquidity and to counteract the loss of purchasing power of their cash savings over the long term.
A lot of people think that pension income from pillars 1, 2 and 3 will equal their current salary. However, depending on how your pension and retirement savings are structured, your income after retiring could be considerably lower, as in the case of Bettina and Markus E. That’s why income from financial assets is so important. Structure your assets at an early stage and according to your situation and needs, so that after retirement you can realize your dreams and continue to enjoy your current standard of living.
