Investment results

Invest carefully for your retirement

The investment policy is based on an investment portfolio that distinguishes between fixed-income and variable-yield securities. This distinction offers a strong possibility of achieving our ambition in the long term: for retired members and non-contributory policyholders, this means a pension that increases to reflect price inflation, and for active members it means pension that increases alongside wage inflation, without incurring excessive risks.
