Start a Family

Start a Family

You’ve made a mark in your profession and notched up serious accomplishments. But your priorities are shifting. You’re now thinking about having children and a family. With our financial advice, we’ll help you prepare properly for this stage in life.

Provide for Your Family

Provide for Your Family

Your family is the most important thing in your life. But since life is full of surprising twists and turns, you have to think ahead. Make preparations in the event that you can no longer support your family. We’ll help you set up appropriate pension and insurance plans and ensure your family is provided for – no matter what happens.

Pay for Your Child’s Education

Like any parent, you only want the best for your children. Especially in terms of their education. We’ll explain how you can help your children enter the profession of their choice.

Cohabitation or Marriage

Cohabitation or Marriage

Marriage or cohabitation? It’s not just a personal preference. It affects your financial situation, too. For example, cohabiting partners file tax returns individually. Also, the law doesn’t cover inherited property or alimony claims following separation. If you’re not married, it may be wise to consider drawing up a written contract with your partner.

Finance Your Own Home

Finance Your Own Home

When you buy a home, you generally make a down payment to cover part of the purchase price and take out a mortgage for the rest. It’s important for this long-term financial obligation to be affordable. We’ll work out the ideal financing plan with you.

Renovate or Modernize

Renovate or Modernize

Convert or renovate? They’re both hot trends. The secret to a successful modernization consists of three steps. First, list what you want to renovate. Then, find out how much the work will cost. Finally, work out the financing. Architects and construction advisors will help you with the planning. Appraisers will assess the value of your property after renovating.

Repay a Mortgage

Repay a Mortgage

These days, there’s much less pressure to pay off debt quickly than there used to be. The reason? Interest rates are currently low. However, they will likely rise in the foreseeable future. That means you should consider how much you’re paying to borrow money and how much you could earn by investing your capital. Ask us for details – we’ll be happy to tell you more.

Sell Real Estate

Sell Real Estate

Selling your house or apartment is a major life event. It often involves a lot of money. You should think carefully about the best way to invest the sales proceeds and possibly pay off any outstanding mortgages, for example. Contact us for a consultation.

Change of Residence

Change of Residence

Moving isn’t just a big life change; it has tax implications as well. Tax laws vary from one canton to the next. Your residence for tax purposes is the place where you have made a life for yourself and reside with your family. Talk to us before you change residences. We’ll be happy to advise you.

Early Retirement

The sooner you plan for retirement, the easier it will be to enjoy it later and live out your days just the way you want. We’ll advise you on saving for retirement, lowering taxes, drawing your pension and picking the best time to retire.

Optimize Your Retirement Provision

Optimize Your Retirement Provision

It pays to voluntarily put aside additional money for retirement. Not only does it provide more financial freedom in retirement, but it lowers your taxes, too. We recommend supplementing your government and occupational pensions with a Pension account – 3rd pillar and our saving with securities plan. We’ll help you seize every opportunity to make sound provision for retirement.

Prepare for Mental Incapacity

Prepare for Mental Incapacity
