How does my pension scheme compare to the Swiss market?

Everyone dreams of a worry-free retirement and sustainable financial well-being. With people living longer and volatile markets, this dream can seem very far away for many. The second pillar pension scheme is incredibly important in the retirement planning for Swiss employees and their protection against death and disability.
