The Ethos Foundation has launched the non-profit association Ethos Académie. The association's aim is to promote a stable and prosperous socio-economic environment, in line with one of the Ethos Foundation's two purposes. Dick Marty, former Senator for the canton of Tessin, will chair the Ethos Académie board of trustees.
Dominique Biedermann, managing director of Ethos Foundation, is honoured with the LANDIS & GYR FOUNDATION 2012 award. The prize is in recognition of his personal commitment to the implementation of corporate governance best practice and the principles of sustainable development in investment activities.
The Ethos Foundation now has 101 members, mainly Swiss pension funds that manage over 120 billion Swiss francs and represent approximately 800'000 insured persons.
