President Rütli Foundation
Aside from his private client business, Karl Reichmuth was also passionate about supporting the common good. That’s why he, along with a friend and the Reichmuth & Co private bank, provided the funding to establish the Rütli Foundation.
Returns for Charity (Rendite für Gemeinnützigkeit®) is another innovative way to donate income from a percentage of assets to charitable causes by means of a usufruct, but not (yet) the assets themselves.
The amount donated by the Rütli Foundation has reached CHF 100 million since its inception in 2000.
The amount of assets held by the Rütli Foundation totals around CHF 300 million. It now supports more than 180 projects each year. Reichmuth & Co also manages around CHF 540 million in foundation funds from independent foundations.
