Making more from your money could not be easier
Retain complete flexibility with cleverinvest
You do not need to be wealthy to start building up your assets: cleverinvest is available with a starting balance of as little as CHF 1,000. You then set the amount you would like to pay in. Once the cumulative deposits reach CHF 50, your capital is invested again automatically. That way, you can continuously build up your assets in a way that suits your budget.
If you need some or all of your savings at short notice, making transfers at any time is no problem – there are no rules on withdrawals.
Monthly deposit of CHF 1,000 in cleverinvest
This sample calculation shows the difference in performance between investing CHF 1,000 per month in cleverinvest (funds) with an average return of 5% p.a. and investing it in a conventional savings account with an interest rate of 0.1% over the same period. The green bar shows the growth in assets from regularly investing in cleverinvest.
It could not be easier to tailor cleverinvest to your needs:
1. Select equity weighting*
2. Select investment themes
3. Pay in and enjoy the benefits
* You will be asked a few questions about your profile to help you select the equity weighting. The recommended equity weighting is calculated on the basis of the answers you give. However, you then also have the option to set your desired equity weighting yourself. Weightings of 20%, 45%, 70% and 95% are available. In addition, there is a 5% liquidity weighting. The rest is invested in Swiss bonds. Within the equity weighting, you select themes that best match your interests. Based on the selection made, the amount invested is automatically placed in an appropriate ETF or index fund.
Select the themes that interest you the most. Examples include disruptive technologies, smart cities, future mobility, real estate, sustainability and many more besides. Bank CIC’s investment experts look for themes which illustrate trends in societal, market and macroeconomic developments and offer the prospect of high growth potential and return opportunities in the medium and long term. They then select the best funds that fully capture the relevant theme and offer the best value for money. Themes can be viewed in detail here.
But that’s not all: You can arrange to invest automatically with a standing order in order to continuously build up your assets. Follow-up payments from as little as CHF 50 can also be made without a problem. This means that there is nothing else you need to do. You will also benefit from lower average prices. This is because making payments at regular intervals over a longer period – irrespective of the market situation – removes the hassle of trying to find the ideal time to invest, i.e. to find the most favourable price.
Once you have built up capital, you can withdraw it using a payout plan. This lets you determine how much is paid out, and how frequently. You can choose who receives these payments. This is suitable, for example, as a way of providing monthly financial support for to children while they are studying, doing an apprenticeship or spending an extended period abroad.
