In a nutshell
Swiss Life Immo Elements comprises a traditional insurance component (security element) and a unit-linked insurance component (return element). The savings premium is split and 95% of it is invested in the return element. This latter amount is invested in the Swiss Life Elements Portfolio Real Estate fund portfolio. Swiss Life invests the remaining 5% of the savings premium in the security element and earns interest.
Your benefits at a glance
- Potential returns: With the return element, the savings premium is invested in two real estate funds, which in turn include both commercial properties and residential real estate. This allows you to benefit from developments on the Swiss real estate market.
- Security: With the security element, Swiss Life invests 5% of the savings premium, which earns interest. In order to purchase owner-occupied residential property, reallocations can be made from the return element to the security element.
- Tax advantages: Premiums in pillar 3a are deductible from taxable income. The payout in pillar 3b
is exempt from income tax.
- Flexibility: A number of options are available so that Swiss Life Immo Elements can be tailored to your changing needs. For example, you can choose an alternative fund portfolio for the savings premiums in the return element instead of the Swiss Life Elements Portfolio Real Estate.
- Financial protection: Protect yourself, your family or those close to you from financial difficulties due to illness, accident or death.
- Complete option: Increase the risk protection within the limit of the coverage extension guarantee without having to undergo another medical examination; special terms on Swiss Life fixed-rate mortgages. A privileged partial surrender is also possible in connection with the financing of owner-occupied residential property.
