LE PROTOKOLL recalls the history of our (Switzerland’s) pension system, conceived by and for the life insurance companies. Well before the creation of the AVS (Assurance Vieillesse et Survivant: Old Age and Survivor Insurance) in 1947, the life-insurance companies had already understood the huge commercial potential of the private pension system. They got together and conceived the the three pillar system, which was massively accepted in a pubic vote in 1972. It is a formidable example of political lobbyisme. This has allowed them to conceive a second pillar to their private interests. Which we are today paying the consequences for.
