Grown-up investing

Just as simple, transparent and cost-efficient: Our children's portfolio with ETFs offers everything that adults also appreciate. These are our investment principles:

  • Always tailor-made
    Whether young or old: with us, all customers receive an investment portfolio with an individual strategy.
  • Scientifically sound
    We pursue a passive investment approach and do not try to beat the market out of conviction.
  • Long-term advantage
    Financial markets are volatile in the short term – but have historically trended upward over the long term.
  • ETF as building blocks
    Returns are achieved by keeping costs low. That's why we rely only on ETFs – and build portfolios with average product costs (TER) of just 0.13 percent.
  • Broad diversification
    Typically, our clients' portfolios contain the following asset classes: Equities, Bonds, Real Estate, Commodities and Cash.

In the name of the child

At 18, the children's portfolio becomes a normal portfolio. Without securities sales, without transfers. Here is the overview of the deposit account.

The portfolio belongs to the child
Everyone can rely on that. Parents, grandparents, friends, relatives – and of course not least the child itself.

From the child, for the child
Assets are tied to the child, but not to True Wealth. Transfers to other accounts in the child's name are possible at any time.

Seamless transition
At 18, the children's portfolio becomes a normal portfolio for adults. Without sale of securities, without transfers, without further effort or costs.

Opening an account as godfather, grandparent or friend of the child?

Want to invest for your godchild, a friend's child – or another child for whom you are not the legal representative? Tell parents about the benefits so they open a child portfolio.

Don't waste an opportunity

Take advantage of the long investment horizon. With an investment in shares you can expect more return: 25'000 francs more wealth after 25 years.

Return instead of mini rates
Monthly deposit of CHF 100

100% equities, 5% return
Savings account, 1.5% interest

UBS, Raiffeisen, Postfinance, ZKB and many other banks in Switzerland call it the preferential interest rates they offer on savings and gift accounts for children and young people. And the interest rates are often higher – relatively speaking. Unfortunately, this does not translate into the higher returns that can be expected from stocks. Here's why: Don't pass up this opportunity.

Investments always involve a risk of loss, especially with a short-term investment horizon.
