With the SmartFlex pension plan (Pillar 3a/3b), you save individually and securely for the period after retirement. In doing so, you benefit from integral risk cover for death and occupational disability. Adapt your pension plan flexibly – to the present and future circumstances of your life.
Under the SmartFlex pension plan, AXA invests your return-oriented capital in broadly diversified equity funds. As a customer, you have the option of choosing an investment that matches your personal convictions. You can choose between "Sustainability", "Switzerland", "Future trends" and "Global".
Around 3,000 companies globally (listed and unlisted, including subsidiaries) are excluded for all investment themes. These operate in sectors such as tobacco, armaments, coal, palm oil as well as oil or gas.

With your personal premium split, you determine which portion of your premium should be invested in equities as return-oriented capital, and which portion earns interest as safety capital and is legally secured in full.
You can individually amend your premium split and decide at any time how your assets should be invested or how much you would like to benefit from the possibility of generating returns.

Did you know that the SmartFlex pension plan includes optional comprehensive term life insurance?
You can choose from the following options:
The amount of the guaranteed death lump sum can be adjusted. This may require a new review of professional, personal and health circumstances.
A pension solution with a bank or insurance company does not have all advantages or disadvantages. But in a detailed comparison of both alternatives, it becomes clear that a Pillar 3a pension solution with an insurance company has many more options and flexibility than a pension account with a bank.
You benefit from AXA’s experience as one of the world’s largest asset managers. We are particularly known for our expertise in managing pension assets. Your contributions in your safety capital have full legal protection in AXA’s tied assets. The capital in your return-oriented capital also has legal protection to the extent of the current market value.
The SmartFlex pension plan can be flexibly adapted to your personal financial circumstances and requirements. Save for your life in retirement in a way that suits you today! You benefit from various safety options and can also easily reallocate capital from the safety capital into the return-oriented capital. You also have the option of varying from the fixed pension premium or stopping individual payments entirely.
With SmartFlex, you determine the area in which you would like your pension capital to be invested. You can choose between "Sustainability", "Switzerland", "Future trends" or "Global", with investments made exclusively in equities. The best thing is that you can change your preferred investment theme whenever you like. Around 3,000 companies globally (listed and unlisted, including subsidiaries) are excluded for all investment themes. These operate in sectors such as tobacco, armaments, coal, palm oil as well as oil or gas.
Under the legal regulations on Pillar 3a, paid-in premiums can be directly deducted from taxable income, which means that the tax burden will be reduced depending on canton and family circumstances. But taxes can also be saved smartly on the basis of Pillar 3b: for instance, disbursements from flexible pension provision are tax-free.
In addition to the SmartFlex pension plan, there is also the option of taking out term life insurance. In the event of your death, the beneficiaries receive an agreed lump sum. Or you choose an occupational disability pension that provides cover against loss of income through illness or accident. But AXA also offers suitable supplementary insurance for a waiver from paying premiums in the event of death or occupational disability.
