Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: The Belgian Association of Pension Institutions (BAPI) is a non-profit organisation established in 1975 to unite Belgian IORPs (Institutions for Occupational Retirement Provision) and organizors of sector pension plans.

The task of BAPI is to represent all non-profit organisations that administer or provide occupational pension schemes based on capitalisation techniques.

The members of BAPI are involved in occupational pensions in the first and second pillar. These are pensions that stem from collective pension promises associated with an economic activity and that are organised by a company, group of companies, sector or public institutions for employees, self-employed persons or civil servants.

BAPI acts as a spokesperson and represents its members in all matters concerning supplementary pension promises in the second pillar.

In consultation with the social partners and government leaders, policymakers, members of parliament, federal public services, administrations, regulators and others, the objective of BAPI is to cooperate in developing a legal and regulatory framework to elaborate sustainability the collective supplementary pension provisions that its members administer or manage on behalf of employees, self-employed persons and civil servants in an occupational context, so as to address the challenges of an ageing population by providing an essential top-up to the state old age pension.
