Occupational pensions

Personalisation of occupational pensions : a bespoke management in the 2nd pillar scheme.

In collaboration with our partners Elite and PensExpert, we provide our clients with our know-how and expertise in asset management in the context of vested benefits and extra-mandatory occupational pension.

Bel-Etage is a flexible solution that consists in creating, for a specific part of the staff of the company, an occupational pension fund called “extramandatory”, which is supplementary to the main pension fund imposed by the LPP (Occupational Pensions Act), in order to enhance retirement, disability and survivors benefits of insured persons, while optimising their possibilities for tax savings through occupational pension (regular contributions + purchases of insurance contributions).

As a result, the self-employed, entrepreneurs and other senior executives have the opportunity to allocate funds – often significant – to substantially improve their pension benefits while at the same time benefiting from the full deduction of such amounts from their taxable income.

Far from being anonymously and collectively managed by an insurance company or a pension fund with the contributions of thousands of insured persons, the amounts invested in this supplementary pension are managed individually by Bordier & Cie according to a strategy defined by the insured person according to his/her own needs.

Advantages

  • Improvement of retirement, disability and death benefits for policyholders
  • Complementarity with existing pension plans in the company. Different occupational pension plans set up with different service providers may coexist
  • Ease of implementation
  • Maximisation of tax optimisation opportunities for insured persons via purchases. The assets held in an occupational pension fund (or in a vested benefits foundation) are also free of income and wealth tax
  • Personalised management of pension assets by an experienced Bordier & Cie asset manager
  • A unique possibility of investment mortgages for policyholders
  • Loyalty of key employees of the company
  • Total transparency: the policyholder receives all the returns generated minus the clearly-identified management fees

Clients share and benefit from our own experience

The ongoing sustainability of wealth, just like that of a business, has to be safeguarded over the long term. As such families possess sizeable resources and means, regardless of whether they have been inherited or acquired more recently, they will be keen to do their utmost to build on their fortune so it can be passed on to future generations under the best possible conditions.

We can offer clients the opportunity to share and benefit from our very own experience (garnered over more than 170 years), but grafting onto this clients’ own personal values and visions.

Investment advice for non-profit organisations and foundations

Non-profit organisations are at the heart of our thinking.

Non-profit organisations act in the interests either of their members (self-help organisations) or of third parties (helping others). Their funding comes from paid services, donations and returns on assets: it is therefore vital that their wealth be managed sustainably and responsibly. Bordier & Cie has therefore opted to specialise in this area.

Our services are aimed at the following:

  • standard foundations, grant-making foundations, public foundations, corporations
  • non-profit associations, umbrella associations/organisations

We offer the following solutions:

  • financial analysis: assessment of income, remuneration, financial contributions, donations and restricted reserves, preparation of budgets and project financing plans
  • investment strategy review: appraisal of the aggregate wealth of the foundation/non-profit, selection of a suitable investment strategy, review of investment regulations
  • wealth management: optimised asset allocation in accordance with the foundation’s needs and objectives

Our aim is to help secure the long-term future of each organisation. Non-profit organisations are at the heart of our thinking.
