Entrepreneurial management of pension funds - Pension Navigator ® and ALM

Managing a pension fund implies deciding about the future today

Boards of Trustees are responsible for their own pension funds. Long-term security and sustainable planning are therefore a prime concern. Professional and far-sighted management engenders the trust of all stakeholders. Given the ever-increasing complexity of employee benefits, security depends to a large degree on expertise, experience and ongoing monitoring. We support you in this task and contribute to the positive development of each pension fund with the PensionNavigator®.

That is why you set great store by long-term security. You know that the feeling of being a member of a secure and successful pension fund creates an atmosphere of trust for all participants. You also strive to achieve optimal performance through a good cost/benefit ratio. Our ALM methodology provides for it.

Against a background of ever-increasing technicality and complexity of employee benefits, security depends to a large degree on expertise, experience and ongoing monitoring. Swiss Life Pension Services AG supports you in this task. With our entrepreneurial management approach and our PensionNavigator®, we contribute to the positive development of your pension fund.
