Vita Invest Collective Foundation

Vita Invest Collective Foundation at a glance

Key data in brief

The Vita Invest Collective Foundation was established in 1998 as a partially autonomous foundation. Vita Invest is ideally suited to medium-sized and large companies that would like to co-determine the structuring of their occupational pension provision as well as the investment of their pension assets. By joining Vita Invest, you benefit from your own pension fund, managed by an administration committee comprised of an equal number of employer and employee representatives, and at the same time outsource risks and execution tasks. The pension fund administration committee defines not only the investment strategy, but also decides the financing of the pension fund, risk protection, use of unrestricted assets and the interest earned on retirement assets.
