Calculation and risk information

Every investment strategy has its own forecast. The calculation uses economic models and statistical methods. A distinction is made between expected performance, the lower value (worst-case performance) and the upper value (best-case performance). In 95 out of 100 cases, the performance of your balance should be between the upper and lower value. The forecast can be generated for an investment horizon of up to 10 years at most. With a longer investment horizon, the calculations are continued with the same values but no statements can be made about the probability that the calculated results will occur. The calculated values are net after deduction of the frankly all-in fee and are based on an interest payment of 0.05% on the pillar 3 account. Please note that this forecast does not take into account inflation and any taxes due at maturity.

Diese Übersicht basiert auf historischen, repräsentativen Indexdaten der letzten 15 Jahre. Die Werte beziehen sich auf die jeweils angezeigte Strategie nach Abzug der Verwaltungsgebühr sowie der relevanten Produktkosten. Die drei Linien stellen eine schlechte Wertentwicklung (5%-Quantil/hellgrau), eine mittlere (50%-Quantil/grün) sowie eine gute (95%-Quantil/dunkelgrau) dar. Mit geringer Wahrscheinlichkeit kann die Wertentwicklung auch ausserhalb dieser Linien zu liegen kommen, das zeigen die helleren Flächen (1%-, resp. 99%-Quantil). Vergangene Marktentwicklungen sind keine Garantie für die zukünftige Wertentwicklung. Die tatsächlich erreichten Vermögenswerte können erheblich von den Schätzwerten abweichen.

Details on the calculation

The expected value is shown after deduction of the cumulative all-in fee and the cumulative average fees of the pillar 3 securities solutions compared by the independent Swiss online comparison service (as of February 2020). The calculation is based on the same assumptions regarding expected performance. It illustrates that saving with lower fees over a longer period of time leads to financial benefits. The calculation is based on the assumption that fees remain unchanged during the entire investment period.
