Isn't that taxable from the jurisdiction where you move to ? unless you chose a jurisdiction which happens to be not so penalizing, for most places it probably makes sense to keep the assets in a pension account to grow tax free
If you are resident in CH at time of withdraw, your.place of residence tax rate applies.
If you are resident abroad at time of withdraw, it is the legal location of the institution that holds your money that dictates the "residence" and applies the tax rate.

Example:
-Live in Geneva and withdraw - Geneva tax rate apply
-Live in Hong Kong and withdraw - money is with Schwyz Kantonal Bank - Schwyz Tax rate applies

Important - some banks have branches everywhere but it is not the branch address that counts but the legal address.
