CPIC is a provident fund, accredited and granted tax exemption by the Canton of Geneva’s Finance and Taxation Department. The Fund complies with Swiss legislation on Professional Pension Funds as a whole and in particular with all its provisions relating to financial investments; this guarantees the security of beneficiaries’ assets.
The Fund is also subject to the supervision of the State of Geneva. CPIC’s holdings are in Euros, the currency of the large majority of beneficiares’ country of residence..
The Fund’s assets are managed in three separate portfolios or segments:
the growth segment in euro (Segment A) geared to long-term performance
the conservative segment in euro (Segment B), to which beneficiaries can subscribe as of the age of 55, if they so wish, geared to preserve their retirement capital by protecting them as far as possible against the risk of short-term volatility of stock markets
the growth segment in Swiss francs (Segment C) geared to mid-term/long-term performance
The share is the unit which measures CPIC’s capitalisation.
