When I arrived in Switzerland I found this to be a good blog + forum about investing in Switzerland

https://www.mustachianpost.com/

You'll probably find a ton of threads on Fundsmith... that's been my best investment decision ... but I still like reading all threads for fun
Fundsmith has done brilliantly and is a great defensive fund fior when the going gets tough but for me Scottish Mortgage has been the star in recent years (especially over Covid) - 220% return over 5 years whereas fundsmith is about 150% iirc.

These days I'm putting more money into Scottish mortgage and also into bailie Gifford global discovery - more positioned towards developing companies which have a higher growth potential.

I never bothered with any 'Swiss' products, historically returns were poor & charges high. The worst investment I ever did was buy all my back pillar 2 years.

I invested in US markets with Schwab & UK via HL
Pillar 3a with VIAC can be just about worth it if you max out the non-Swiss equities. I think it'll be at least competitive given the tax advantages, especially near retirement.
