Vested Benefits Foundation

In Switzerland, a vested benefits foundation is a legal entity which manages vested benefits – pillar 2 occupational pension fund assets which are not managed by an occupational pension fund.

Vested benefits foundations may offer their own vested benefits accounts – as is the case with foundations which operate as subsidiaries of Swiss banks – or they may manage assets held in accounts provided by third-party banks.
