Prof. Dr. Martin Eling and his colleague Christoph Jaenicke have concluded in a study on the new labor market and its effects on the pension system that the decentralized Swiss pension funds urgently need a digital boost. According to Eling, the study is a message to politicians to react to the digital transformation of the pension system. For example, insured persons should be able to view relevant information on their pension entitlements (from the various pillars) at any time via an online portal.
