Do you want to invest pension assets profitably and in a manner that increases value? You’ll find the advice and products you’re looking for at the Swiss Life Investment Foundation. No matter what your needs are, you’ll find the right investment groups. And you’ll do so with partners who have the best qualifications.

The Swiss Life Investment Foundation is a foundation established by Swiss Life. The purpose of the investment foundation is the collective investment and management of pension assets for our third-party clients.

Tax-exempt Swiss employee benefits institutions may become affiliated with the investment foundation. Primary among these are autonomous and semi-autonomous pension funds, but also collective foundations that manage the savings process and risk insurance separately. The latter are especially suitable for smaller and medium-sized companies that want to outsource their employee benefits completely.

Board of Trustees
The board of trustees is appointed by the investors in a meeting and is largely composed of investor representatives.

Supervisory authority
Our Investment Foundation is subject to supervision by the Supervisory Commission for occupational pensions (OAK BV).

The auditor is PricewaterhouseCoopers AG.

Brochure Investment philosophy

Objective selection of asset managers
The most suitable investment managers are selected on the basis of objective criteria and taking into consideration the particular requirements of the investment groups. One or more asset managers may be used, depending on the structure of the investment group.

Independent and consistent monitoring
The independent investment controller monitors the investment activities of the selected asset managers regularly and systematically on the basis of qualitative and quantitative criteria.

Structuring within the investment groups
The portfolios within the investment groups have a contemporary structure. The equity investment group thus follows a core-satellite approach.

Risk-optimised products

The product range consists of fund-like investment groups provided to specific clients segments by the Swiss Life Investment Foundation. All investors are tax-exempt Swiss employee benefits institutions.

These investment groups can be acquired by clients as part of a 3a pension solution or a Swiss Life Wings Invest vested benefit solution.
