ARPINGE: ARchitetti (Architects) Periti Industriali (Industrial Engineers) INgegneri (Professional Engineers) GEometri (Surveyors)
Arpinge derives from “technical” social security funds, which represent the main professions active in the area: Architects, Industrial Engineers, Professional Engineers, and Surveyors.
Arpinge owes its name to the Founding Shareholders, but it is above all open to other institutional investors – especially social security funds – which share its goals and values.
INARCASSA, Cassa Geometri and EPPI, Arpinge’s three Founding Shareholders, represent a total of abt. 264,000 members and manage assets of over EUR 15 billion (2019 figures).
The Cassa Italiana di Previdenza e Assistenza dei Geometri liberi professionisti (Italian Welfare and Social Security Fund for Freelance Surveyors), was established in 1955 as a public institution for social security and welfare for Surveyors. It was privatised on 1st January 1995 and transformed into a private institution with its current name and has over 81,000 members.
It has assets of approximately EUR 2.4 billion.
All freelance surveyors enrolled on the national professional register who practise the profession, even discontinuously and non-exclusively, are members of Cassa Geometri.
Cassa Geometri provides pensions, welfare benefits and a wide range of integrated welfare services.
