Outsourcing pension commitments for company pension schemes is beneficial – it strengthens your balance sheet and minimizes cost risk.

Many companies offer their employees a company pension in the form of classic pension commitments, which are carried on the balance sheet. Such commitments to retirement, disability and surviving dependents’ pensions, which are based on salary and length of service, are dynamic – and involve significant planning, accounting and liquidity risks.

A good way out – outsourcing pension obligations from the company pension scheme

Outsource your pension obligations from an occupational pension scheme to one of our professionally managed pension funds. With the appropriate investment, suitable volatility and active risk management, you minimize your risk of having to make additional contributions due to market fluctuations. With Swiss Life Pensionsfonds AG, you gain an experienced partner – which was established as a legally independent pension institution by the German branch of Swiss Life AG, one of the leading providers in the occupational pensions areas. Swiss Life Pensionsfonds AG is open to companies in any industry with around 500 pension recipients and 1,000 employees or more.
