Remuneration of Board and Executive Board members
The remuneration of the Board of Groupe Mutuel is governed by a set of regulations. It consists of a fixed fee and the reimbursement of representation or travel expenses. The annual remuneration of the members of the Board is limited to CHF 200,000 for the President and to CHF 80,000 for the other members. To these amounts are added CHF 10,000 when they participate in one or several specialised committees, but not more than CHF 20,000.
