Currently, there are about 1,900 pension funds in Switzerland with an investment volume of nearly CHF 800 billion. Of these, just about 50 percent are collective investment schemes. Because of the ongoing low interest rates and even the partially negative interest rates, more and more pension funds are on the look-out for attractive investment options abroad. Indirect investments, such as equity interests in international funds are especially appealing.
