In recognition of the strength of its diversified investment strategy, designed to obtain the greatest benefits for its clients with a long-term perspective, Profuturo won for the third consecutive year the Best Pension Fund Manager Award at the International Finance Awards 2021.
This strengthens Profuturo’s position as one of the leading advisory and fund management companies in Mexico which has been offering better returns for people under 60 years of age . It also highlights Profuturo’s strength as it navigated through a complicated and challenging situation like the Covid-19 pandemic, which impacted the economy and business models globally.
In this regard, Arturo García, General Director of Profuturo said, “We are very proud of the progress made in a year that has been particularly difficult and challenging, supporting our clients to overcome the effects of this crisis, helping to protect and increase their savings, at the same time that we promote projects for the recovery of our economy.”
Profuturo – which is part of Grupo Bal, one of the most important business groups in Mexico, with more than 100 years of contributing to the growth and development of the country – has been working since 1996 helping to build the wealth of Mexican families, offering savings services for the retirement of more than 6 million workers , representing 16.2 percent of the sector’s resources.
Further, for Profuturo it is a source of pride to receive for the third consecutive year the Best Pension Fund Manager Award, granted by International Finance, a globally recognised magazine specialising in business and finance, which has evaluated and recognised talent, leadership and capacity of a wide range of companies in different productive and financial sectors around the world since 2013.
The National Commission of the Retirement Savings System (CONSAR, by its acronym in Spanish) has confirmed, for the second consecutive year, the first place to Profuturo in the MAS AFORE service indicator, which evaluates the attributes of the Fund Administrators of Savings for Retirement (AFORE, by its acronym in Spanish) and the quality of its services for workers.
This indicator assesses the agility and quality of care in the services; territorial coverage of branches; use of non-contact service channels; promotion of voluntary and solidarity saving; and attention provided by the Afores to registered requests.
It is also worth mentioning that since last year, Profuturo has promoted various initiatives to facilitate and accelerate the provision of services, such as the instrumentation of self-service modules in branches that speed up customer service, as well as the provision of digital tools that facilitate interaction with users.
In response to the health emergency, Profuturo prioritised care and protection of the health of its customers and collaborators, for whom it provided free medical service during the onset of the pandemic, as well as care and protection measures, both in the branches as in face-to-face services. For this reason, in addition to its outstanding work environments, the company endorsed its accreditation as a Socially Responsible Company and a Great Place to Work.
In addition, in recognition of the strength of its investment teams and processes, focused since 2019 on the UN Principles for Responsible Investment, Profuturo obtained the Morningstar Silver distinction , the highest awarded among the Afores in Mexico, after the evaluation annually carried out by this prestigious company, specialised in independently analysing investment companies around the world.
Always with the vision of putting clients at the centre, Profuturo maintains its commitment to continue working hard to improve its solid investment management strategy, exploring new markets and increasing the performance of its different tools as well as teams, to provide its clients and to the Mexican market the best results and experiences.
