Characteristics and objectives of CAIXA PENSIONS 30, F.P.

In January 2017, the Control Committee of Pensions Caixa 30, F.P. (PC30) approved a new definition of the Characteristics and Objectives set out in its Statement of Investment Policy Principles.


  • PC30, as a Pension Fund in which only the CaixaBank, S.A. Employment Pension Plan is integrated, has the fundamental mission of responding to the needs and objectives of its Participants and Beneficiaries as a whole in order to provide pensions that adequately complement those of the public system.
  • The achievement of these objectives must be done in a responsible and sustainable manner over time by all the agents involved (Control Committee, Sub-Committees, Management Company, Depositary and Consultants) in the running of the Pension Fund.

Investment Objective

  • The investment objective of the Pension Fund is to achieve an annual return (measured on an annualised basis over 5 years) in line with the 3-month Euribor + 2.75%.
  • The level of risk associated with this objective should be in the region of 10% (measured through annual volatility).
  • An annual volatility of 10% would equate to a risk profile of 4 on the CNMV scale, which measures risk in Investment Funds (ranging from 1 for funds with a lower risk profile to 7 for those at the opposite end of the scale).
  • This investment objective should be understood exclusively as a reference point for action, and under no circumstances should it be interpreted as a collective or individual commitment of participants and beneficiaries, whose rights and future development will ultimately also depend on their particular characteristics.
  • Failure to achieve this objective will not imply a breach of the Fund’s Investment Policy.

Strategic plan

Following the finalisation of the 2018-2020 strategic plan, we present the new 2021-2023 plan which aims to serve as a framework for the development of the PC30 over the next 3 years. As a novelty with respect to the previous strategic plan, this one introduces goals in order to materialise the plan into concrete actions.

The following factors have been taken into account in making the plan:
