The Swisscanto Investment Foundations were established in 1973, and the Avant Investment Foundation in 2006. They are among the largest and most well-known investment foundations in Switzerland.
Their task is the collective management of assets placed in their care by over 900 Swiss pension funds and pension schemes. The investment foundations are enshrined as part of the structural reforms to the BVG (Swiss Pension Fund Act) and thus also as part of the second pillar. As an investor, you can trust that the BVV2 rules are reliably observed with your pension fund when investing in our investment groups.
The Swisscanto Investment Foundations are members of KGAST (Conference of Managers of Investment Foundations) and committed to their high quality standards.
Swiss pension funds and pension schemes have the option of participating cost-effectively in professionally managed, tax-free special assets with an innovative range of products. The extensive range of products encompasses investment groups in a variety of categories: equities, bonds, BVG diversified investments, alternative investments, sustainable investments and real estate. The assets are managed by portfolio managers according to clear specifications – an approach with proven success.
