* Total costs include the external product costs and the VIAC administration fee. The VIAC administration fee covers custody, administration and transactions and amounts to 0.52% per year. For a given strategy, the fee is charged only on the portion of assets that the strategy invests in equities, real estate, commodities, …, not on the portion of assets that the strategy assigns to the interest bearing savings account. As a result, strategies that invest more into the savings account have lower total costs.

Selection Process

The Terzo Pension Foundation of WIR Bank has applied the following selection criteria to determine the index investments used:


Each index investment is strongly oriented towards an underlying benchmark index. In order to ensure that the individual strategies are globally diversified and sensibly distributed according to asset classes and regions, the appropriate benchmark indices must be selected beforehand. Note that this preselection is not always obvious: For example, the SMI, SLI, SPI and SMIM all reflect the Swiss stock market, but they all differ greatly in terms of diversification and risk/return profile.

Quantitative Characteristics

In order to reflect the preselected benchmark indices as well and as cost-effectively as possible, the following quantitative criteria are used: product fees, trading liquidity, tracking error (deviation from the benchmark), and trading spread. These characteristics are regularly checked and guarantee an optimal and customer-oriented choice of the index investments used.

Tax Influences

In addition to quantitative criteria, tax influences also play an important role. Index funds are a major part of the investments used. These are not traded on the stock exchange and are therefore not subject to stamp duty. In the case of the remaining investment products (ETFs), stamp duty is due, but it is also reduced by VIAC’s intelligent offsetting system (see Academy).


Last but not least, the type of replication also influences the selection. Where possible, physically replicated funds are implemented. They effectively invest in the stocks of the underlying benchmark index. Investments in synthetically replicating products are avoided if possible since they are exposed to counterparty risk.
