In a nutshell
Swiss Life Premium Comfort Duo is the right choice for you if you want to save for the future and earn higher returns. This life insurance with fund investments offers two advantages: you protect your family and yourself and gradually build up your assets. Another benefit is that you enjoy attractive tax advantages.
This is how it works: you invest a fixed amount each month. With Swiss Life Premium Comfort Duo, you have four different fund portfolios with a focus on dividends and interest income to choose from. They differ in terms of their equity component and their risk-return profile.
Your best course of action would be to obtain advice from one of our experts. Working together, we’ll find out which fund portfolio best meets your personal return expectations and your desired investment horizon. Towards the end of the contract term, we’ll gradually reallocate your assets into a less risky investment. As a result, they will be less exposed to fluctuations on the market and you can feel more secure.
Your benefits at a glance
- Potential returns: the experts at Swiss Life Asset Managers review the quality of each fund under several criteria, only including the best funds in the portfolio. So an investment in Swiss Life Premium Comfort Duo offers you attractive potential returns. If you are worried about market turbulence, we will move your portfolio assets at your request to a low-risk investment – and then back into your fund portfolio at a later date.
- Tax advantages: you can deduct the premiums in pillar 3a from your taxable income, and you pay neither income nor wealth tax for the term of the contract. The capital income in pillar 3b is tax-exempt (under certain conditions).
