Since 1995 Complementa annually conducts a comprehensive study on the status of domestic pension funds. Our prestigious pension fund study provides valuable insights for pension funds and its management, which is why more than 440 pension funds participated in 2021 (equivalent to CHF 780 billion in total assets)!

Participating is worth the effort: Besides a copy of the study, we offer each participating pension fund an individual “risk check-up”. All we require are data from the pension funds annual statement. The information is treated confidentially and evaluated anonymously.

Individual analysis for Pension Funds

Peer Group Analyse PensionskassenEach pension fund receives an individual analysis free of charge in return for the study-participation. In addition to essential peer comparisons, elementary risk information is prepared in order to help the pension fund representatives identifying potential threats to pension security at an early stage.

Our detailed evaluation is a precious tool for pension fund managers and to assessing the funds financial strategy and situation.
