finpension was initiated in 2015 by Beat Bühlmann. Together with Ivo Blättler, a former companion at a Swiss private bank, he first established the 1e collective foundation. By establishing the foundation, they anticipated a change in the law, which was enacted by the Federal Council on 1 October 2017.

In 2018, the offer was expanded to include a affiliated solution in the form of a vested benefits foundation. Under the management of Gaëtan Maraite, a new location was established in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. Finally, in 2020, the 3a Retirement Savings Foundation was added, which completes the range of pension products for the moment.

Insured persons of the finpension 1e Collective Foundation can now also manage their 1e account in the finpension app (information for the insured: a final login via the old yourpension platform is required so that the 1e account can be transferred to the finpension app).
