Solutions to meet occupational benefits challenges

The collective and individual occupational benefits solutions offered by Edmond de Rothschild (Suisse) S.A. provide large companies, small and medium-sized businesses and executives with flexible, customised management of their occupational benefits obligations.

Key points

  • Helping occupational benefits institutions and companies meet the new challenges of the second pillar

    Recent changes to the regulatory framework of the Swiss Occupational Benefits Act (LPP in French) have made occupational pension fund management more complex.

    • The LPP provisions on governance and transparency which took effect under the Structural Reform led to changes in approach.
    • The concept of derisking is impacting all occupational benefits players.
    • Prévoyance 2020, the overall reform project of the Swiss social security system, is a new challenge for the second pillar.                                                                 
    • Result: additional operating costs which impact SMEs in particular.

    A significant structural change is also under way among occupational benefits providers. The number of pension funds fell from over 3,000 in 2004 to 1,957 in 2013. The number of policyholders grew by +30% over the same period.

    Needs created:

    • SMEs have to manage the additional costs to remain competitive.
    • They must continue to provide a transparent, attractive and flexible occupational pension scheme to attract and retain the best employees.
  • Flexible and innovative occupational benefits solutions for employers
