Moving German private pensions to Switzerland

Hi,
does anybody know if it's possible to move a German BAV pension (the equivalent of the 2nd pillar here) inside a Swiss 2nd pillar?

I have a small BAV pension, and an even smaller Basisrente, in Germany, and I'd prefer to somehow consolidate them inside my 2nd or 3rd pillar, rather than keep them scattered.

Thank you

3rd pillar won't be possible and 2nd pillar is likely to be a bad idea because of poorly invested Swiss 2nd pillar. See the warnings in the Irish thread.

I don't know it for a fact, but I don't think you can. BAV is paid out only starting with retirement, and I think that applies also in case you terminate before (stop paying).
