Continue supporting causes important to you

The philanthropic contribution anyone makes is a personal and important decision. Individuals need complete freedom of choice over how much they donate, in what form and to which organisations. Many individuals also want to protect their loved ones financially. And it’s important that donations can alter as wishes and circumstances change over time. Swiss Life Generations provides the flexibility and security individuals need to achieve all their plans.

An example - Giving back to society

After making his fortune in Bio Tech, Thomas has started planning what would happen to his assets after he passes away. While he wants to leave his entire estate to his children, he also plans to contribute to two charities that he supports. He is already a significant contributor to two organisations, one in Colombia and the other in Cambodia, contributing EUR 500 000 each year. Is it possible to ensure that both his family and his chosen charities benefit after his death?

What happens to the estate?


Leave his estate to his children

With well-structured wealth planning, Thomas can arrange for his estate to be transferred to his children in line with his wishes.

What happens with the insurance policy?


The insurance benefit goes to the organisations

By naming the two organisations as beneficiaries of the policy, each one will receive the payment of the insurance benefit.
