2021 – A year of contradictions
In 2021, as the population suffered from the restrictive measures that were imposed periodically to contain the spread of COVID-19, financial markets soared to unprecedented heights, with signs of rising inflation. While it was feared that reduced human contact due to the pandemic would undermine economic structures, companies have shown extraordinary resilience, supported by swift and effective measures. The massive intervention of central banks was beneficial to the economy, allowing the various stock markets to register exceptional results.
Against this mixed backdrop, Swiss pension funds have made solid gains in their investment activities, and most of them are now in a healthy position.
In this context, Groupe Mutuel Prévoyance-GMP obtained the best rating for the interest rate allocated to insured persons over three years, between 2018 and 2020.
2021 was not only an exceptional year in terms of investments, but also in terms of our business activities, with a record volume of new affiliations during the year, which shows that the Fund is meeting the expectations of SMEs.
The success of Groupe Mutuel Prévoyance-GMP’s activities owes a lot to the daily efforts of those of our employees who are involved in the management of pension contracts. Throughout the year, they deal with various requests from our insured persons and employers, with both accuracy and efficiency.
