Second Pillar Account - in Euro?

My second pillar account is currently denominated in CHF. Is it possible to have it converted into Euro but still leave the money in the account to be invested?

Re: Second Pillar Account - in Euro?

Art. 55 BVV limits foreign currency positions to 30% in vested accounts. Although, this limit is at the pension foundation's level, not individual account, I doubt you'd find a bank willing to do what you want for your account.
