Investment fund account Grow your assets step by step

With an investment fund account you can systematically build up assets – to reach your own goals and dreams, or to set money aside for your child, grandchild, or godchild's future.

Sound advice

To find the right investment strategy for you, we need to understand your financial situation and appetite for risk. We do this by drawing up your personal investment profile.

The investment fund account in detail

The investment fund account combines the advantages of a savings account with those of an investment. Investment funds let you profit from financial market growth and benefit from higher earnings potential over the long term than with a savings account.

You decide how much you want to pay in to the investment fund account. As soon as the balance of your investment fund account exceeds CHF 250, it is invested in your chosen funds. The threshold for children, young adults and students is CHF 100. If the account balance is lower, favorable interest rates are paid on your money.

Take a tip from us: make regular payments into your investment fund account using a standing order. This raises your chances of a lower average cost price, and increases your long-term returns.
