Based on actual government bond yields and historic performances on shares, the tool proposes a portfolio of bonds and shares according to the personal risk threshold. Also, it provides its users with a bandwidth of possible portfolio returns in the time frame. The tool was developed by liquid-s using Microsoft Silverlight. The bond yields are updated daily by reading information published by the US Departement of Treasury. The historic performance of shares are based on the numbers given by Robert Shiller from Yale University.
Liberty Vorsorgestiftung uses a Webservice from liquid-s to compare the swiss pension assets in two situations, either to reinvest the cash withdrawal, net of German income tax, as private assets or to transfer the vested pension benefits to Liberty Foundation for Vested Benefits for deferred withdrawal at a later date. The WebService is implemented as a WCF REST Service running on the liquid-s calculation infrastructure in the cloud.
