Pension fund management

Support in the day-to-day management of a pension Foundation and assistance or advice on specific projects.

We assist you in managing your pension Foundation in accordance with your needs. Thanks to our expertise, we are happy to support you on various topics such as elections to the Board of Trustees, review of internal control systems, liquidity planning and much more. In our expert hands, day-to-day and recurring tasks such as organising and monitoring agreed actions of the Foundation Board meetings, reviewing complex issues, and occasional projects are carried out professionally.

Depending on the size and know-how of the Board of Trustees, it may be advantageous to partially or fully delegate management tasks to an external specialist. In many cases, this allows for the administrative costs and the time of internal resources to be optimised, while benefiting from an efficient exchange of knowledge thanks to the centralised management of several similar mandates of the service provider. This is precisely where we step in: advise and support you in the management of your Foundation. Our approach: 360°Benefits.

Flexible services

At an operational level, pension fund management is the core central function of operation and control of the Foundation. Principles of strong governance consider the separation of administration and management tasks to be of "best practice". You can achieve this separation of duties by mandating us to manage the entire Foundation and/or in a secretarial role - the Board of Trustees can choose its desired level of autonomy. For example, if you do not wish to delegate all tasks, we can offer dedicated support for individual tasks and projects, such as elections to the Board of Trustees, prepare annual financial information for insured members, the coordination of annual accounts, and any specific projects. Our solutions are flexible and can therefore be adapted to your specific needs.

We also offer comprehensive training and development courses (bespoke to your Foundation), which can take place at a regular meeting of the Board or during at a dedicated training meeting.
