  • In addition to the ETFs from the “ETF market leaders”, all equities from the SMI, DAX, CAC40, Euro Stoxx 50, Dow Jones and Nasdaq-100 can be selected for a saving plan (example: saving plan for Apple shares).

    It is also possible to invest in nine themed certificates (structured products) in the form of a saving plan.

    You can find further information directly in e-trading under “Saving plans”.

    • With an ETF saving plan, you can benefit from the cost averaging effect by paying a selected amount into an ETF of your choice on a monthly, fortnightly or weekly basis.

    • The amount and frequency of inpayments into ETF saving plans depends on your individual financial situation, your investment objectives and your risk profile. E-trading can be used to buy whole units between CHF 5 and CHF 200.

    • Markets can be volatile in the short term, leading to fluctuations in the value of an ETF portfolio. Long-term investments smooth out these fluctuations. They also exert a cost averaging effect, leading to a more favourable average price in the long term through regular investments.

    • The longer the investment horizon, the greater the chance of a return from an ETF saving plan.
