Our

Organisation
In occupational provident schemes, the saying « TIME IS MONEY » proves to be decidedly critical.

It was in 1974 that the Banque Populaire Suisse created « Columna Genève » which was to become, fourteen years later, « La Collective de prévoyance – Copré ».
During this decade and a half, the story of our Foundation was punctuated by various bank takeovers:
Credit Suisse acquired the Banque Populaire Suisse and then the life insurer Winterthur AG.
An acquisition too much. In 1988, the Delegates’ Assembly decided to pursue the adventure independently under the name of « La Collective de Prévoyance – Copré ».

Life stories. With us it is your path and objectives that define our solutions, not the other way round. Our solution is your solution. It’s because we fully master provident schemes and their stakes that we can offer you tailor-made solutions. No fixed or pre-established benefit, everything is planned in function of your needs.
The strength that comes from being a collective. Copré belongs to its members. Affiliates that participate in this common dynamic. Besides, our Board of Trustees is composed of a team of men and women at the very heart of the subject and its preoccupations: our clients. You.
A foundation. Copré is a foundation and benefits from the prerogatives of its status. With no shareholders, we have no remunerations to guarantee other than those of the persons we insure. And no other interests to serve but yours, in total independence, flexibility and transparency.
