Growing Yield advantages with Swiss Residential Mortgages

Given the low interest rate environment at the moment, it is barely possible to generate positive returns with bonds. As a result, Picard Angst uses Swiss Residential Mortgages to offer an attractive alternative, via the investment foundation avenirplus. By financing mortgages, primarily on residential properties in Switzerland’s Mittelland region, it is possible to generate yield advantages while keeping risk levels low.
