Minimum interest rate of 1% remains unchanged for 2019

November 7, 2018

The Federal Council has today decided to maintain the current minimum interest rate of 1% for 2019, against the recommendation of the Federal Commission for Occupational Pensions, which proposed 0.75%.

The 1% rate is certainly reasonable, but for plans close to the minimum BVG/LPP, the cost of maintaining the 6.8% conversion rate is added to the 1% interest credit. All in all, this leads to a relatively ambitious performance target.
