Currently, it looks that the AHV funds would have to be fixed assets with a clear negative return, said the President of the Fund Compenswiss, Manuel Leuthold, on Saturday in an Interview with the "Switzerland on the weekend". More details can be known only when the year is actually finished. However, the Minus will not be only one percent, Leuthold. The Minus sign should be "approximately in the order of three to four percent," he said.

This will not be this year, - said Leuthold. He expected for 2018 with a deficit in the levy between one and 1.5 billion Swiss francs. As the main reason for the poor investment performance of the AHV-investment Fund, President of the negative developments on the capital markets. "We have not been able to escape," he said.

In addition, you could reduce the pension benefits or the retirement age increase. The latter measure would have "the result that we could have our money long-term to create and as a result, higher yields would reach," said Leuthold.
