frankly advantages - pillar 3a app

What are the advantages of frankly?

You already know how important retirement planning is. Now it is a matter of finding the right provider with the right retirement savings plan. We give you some good reasons why you should use frankly in future:

Save taxes with pillar 3a - frankly

1. You save on taxes

frankly pillar 3a: With every franc you pay into your frankly pillar 3a, you reduce your taxable income and save on taxes! This means you benefit twice over.


frankly vested benefits: Dividends and income on your vested benefits are not subject to withholding, income or wealth tax for the entire term.

2. Open an account in just a few minutes

We make sure that you don't have to go to a branch office or fill in any annoying paperwork. The opening process only takes a few minutes. All you need is a valid ID, a smartphone, tablet or computer and you’re ready to start building your retirement savings.

3. Deposit as little as CHF 1*

You can decide how much to invest: there is no minimum deposit, no minimum term and also no notice periods. 
*Payments may only be made into the frankly pillar 3a account. You can only transfer funds to the frankly vested benefits account if you leave your pension fund or if you already have an existing vested benefits account.

4. Clear & simple – fully digital

We have completely rethought retirement planning. With frankly, you can open, manage and balance your retirement plan entirely online, comfortably and easily. You can see your performance at any time and can access all important information and documents from anywhere. What more do you want?
