Brexit and Pension Withdrawal

Does the Brexit deal open options for exporting pillar 2 pensions out of Switzerland and into a UK account? I've found this which suggests maybe yes?

"the periods of insurance completed before and after 31.12.2020 are taken into account for the acquisition of a Swiss or a British pension. Their pensions can also be exported."

Many thanks if anyone has any light on this, or can shed light on this as the agreement unfolds!
