Why would you invest is Swiss stocks.
I try to invest on all possible stocks on the planet.

Remaining OT, I replied to Phil who wrote "Non-taxable investments overseas." and non-paying dividend single stocks are not taxed no matter whether they are Swiss or international. So I did not understand aSwissInTheUS's reply.

Looks like you are doing your taxes wrong.
What exactly am I doing wrong? I am really interested as I have just printed a mountain of papers to send to the tax office for 2019

When I once put a value of 0 on the Eigenmietwert for my property abroad (as suggested by a Treuhand - according to him it was OK because my sister lived in the flat) the tax office corrected it for me.

There are a few codes for *Ausland*, with some (most popular I guess?) countries having their own code, plus a generic one for all others. I am selecting two of them thus far.

By the way a certain amount of pillar 2 can be invested in the market (e.g. stocks, bonds, etc..)
Most pension plans invest the accrued savings contributions across asset classes. Although, investment decisions are taken by the pension foundation (or their investment committee if they have one), rather than the employee.

I suppose you’re referring to 1e type plans, where employees can take investment decisions for extra mandatory portion of their pension contributions. This is usually accessible to staff on higher salaries, and where the pension plan contributions are significantly higher than the legal minimum.

1e plan investments are more exposed to market volatility and most 1e plan participants take a conservative approach to their investments.
