Since 30 years Complementa annually conducts a comprehensive study on the status of Swiss pension funds. Our prestigious pension fund study provides valuable insights for pension funds and its management, which is why some 440 pension funds participated in 2023 (equivalent to CHF 760+ billion in total assets)!

Every pension fund receives a free individual analysis. An event is held to present the study to an industry audience.



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.

Download: The questionnaire is available here (in German and French).


Pension Fund Study

Within the representative study, we focus on the current health status of the pension fund sector but also on recognizing market trends by means of analyzing the extensive data of our 30-year study history.

Our study also sheds light on a yearly changing special topic. In 2024, we will focus on the topic “Negative to positive: What pension funds need to watch out for in the new interest rate environment”.

Risk Check-up: Individual Analysis

Each 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.

Study participants and decision-makers from pension funds will be invited exclusively to the presentation of results in Zurich in September. An exciting program including lunch provides an excellent setting to interpret the results, discuss the study’s special topic in depth and exchange ideas & experiences with peers from other pension funds.
