News from the Board of Trustees


The Board of Trustees of the ALSTOM Switzerland Pension Fund/Supplementary Insurance Plan met on 14 June 2012. Here are the latest news:

  • Regrettably, the performance in May was once again slightly negative (Pension Fund -1.43%; Supplementary Insurance Plan -1.10%), pushing down the good results achieved in the previous months. The accumulated results amount to 2.69% in the Pension Fund and 2.77% in the Supplementary Insurance Plan.
  • The current investment strategy was reviewed in cooperation with the Investment Consultant. Due to the result of this review, the Board of Trustees has decided on a slight modification. Accordingly, a 3% strategic value is now being invested in emerging market bonds (local currency).
  • The new 4-year term of the Board of Trustees will commence on 1 January 2013.
