Want to save money while saving securities? The all-in fee on your account and securities balance is currently 0.47% thanks to the community discount. With frankly, you can expect no securities custody fees and no flat-rate administrative fees for the investment product; they are included in the all-in fee. Saving securities with frankly is half the price of comparable offers.
You also benefit from the community discount: the all-in fee becomes even cheaper, the more users save together. You can track how far away you are from the next discount tier in the app.
Please note that issue and redemption charges apply in favour of the fund for the indexed investment products in particular and these are not included in the all-in fee. You can find an exact definition of the all-in fee in the FAQs.

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 moneyland.ch (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.
The more customers save with frankly pensions, the cheaper the all-in fee becomes for everyone. As soon as we reach the first 100 million francs of assets invested with frankly, we will grant a 2% discount on the all-in fee for all frankly users. This means that managing your pillar 3a will become cheaper over time. You can track how far away we are from the next tier in the app.
Community discount on all-in fee
The community discount makes the all-in fee cheaper. The more everyone deposits with frankly, the greater the discount. In other words: the community discount depends on the total assets. So the total of all account and securities balances with frankly. The discount level is always decided at the end of the quarter. The discount then applies retroactively for the last three months.
The community discount has already been deducted from the current all-in fee of 0.47%. There is no legal claim to the discount.
