Has anyone moved their pension from Norway/ Sweden + UK?

Hello I am looking for advice about moving my pension pots from these 3 countries. I am not really sure what's happened to the UK since Brexit and whether it's possible to move pensions at all to Switzerland?

Can anyone give current advice? If you have ever moved your pension from Sweden/ Norway I would also appreciate your advice. Would it be possible to move these to pillar 2/3a?

I don't think you can move a pension from the uk to Switzerland and you certainly shouldn't even if you could. Pillar 2 gives appalling returns (mine at 2% is one of the better ones!)

I second this - a UK pension is treated the same as a Swiss pension for tax and other stuff that matters, but is significantly more flexible and likely to give a decent return.

I guess I am wondering if it's even possible at all - If anyone can guide me to the right companies / recommend somewhere. My Swedish/ Norwegian pension pots are quite large and I would really like the option to use some of that money for a property as I have heard this is possible in Switzerland.

I don't mind leaving the UK pension behind as it is much smaller. Please advise.
