Re: How do people prepare for their pensions?

Spin-off from this - https://www.englishforum.ch/3183618-post102.html - thread where there were quite a few comments on my pension choices (https://www.englishforum.ch/3183655-post110.html).

We save about 25% of our income into pillar 2 (mandatory and voluntary) and pillar 3. It might seem a lot but there is no real substantial pension anywhere else, nor do we own a house or other things. We chose this as the state pension in about 30 years looks woefully low and have no idea what else to do so that it is still feasible to stay in Switzerland after retirement.

What do other people do? Do you not worry about your pensions? Do you have a better way of putting money aside?
www.fundsmith.co.uk allowed me to retire early, Swiss pension returns are very poor. Since retiring 5.75 years ago & spending my capital I have roughly twice as much money as I had when I retired, this is lucky as I got married & my expenses have doubled.
