Social Responsibility & Philanthropy
The REYL Group attaches the utmost importance to conducting its affairs as a responsible member of society. Recognising its privileged position, it promotes values of generosity and care and is committed to giving back to the community in thoughtful and meaningful ways.
Partnership with Swiss Paralympic
Continuing its tradition of collaborating with elite sportsmen and women, in January 2019 the REYL Group became an official partner of Swiss Paralympic, the umbrella organisation for Swiss handicapped athletes. REYL & Cie is lending its support to this group of top athletes to help them achieve their goals at the Paralympic Games staged in Tokyo in 2020.
The REYL Group will be supporting the Swiss athletes who have been selected by Swiss Paralympic to take part in the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics. For these elite competitors, achieving their Paralympian dream demands tireless physical and mental commitment, in an ever increasingly competitive environment. However, through this sponsorship agreement, the REYL Group hopes to ensure the athletes focus all their attention on their preparation, so that when the time comes to take part in this major Paralympic event, they are in the perfect frame of mind to achieve their goals.

Research for Life Foundation
Research for Life Foundation
The quest for innovation that characterises the REYL Group is also present in its philanthropic endeavours, such as the creation in 2014 of the Research for Life foundation, a Swiss non-profit organisation dedicated to supporting and funding ground-breaking medical projects in the fields of adult and paediatric oncology.
Exceptionally promising research programs
Research for Life identifies and supports promising research teams with the ambition to make breakthrough progress in the understanding and treatment of emblematic forms of cancer, particularly through the use of innovative technologies.
Disciplined projects selection process
Research for Life focuses on projects characterised by their intensity and their ambition as well as the academic and clinical achievements of their promoters. Works conducted by the teams of Prof. Michielin, Group Leader at of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics, oncologist at CHUV in Lausanne and renowned world specialist in the field on immunotherapy, are a perfect illustration of the kinds of highly stimulating works that Research for Life wishes to support.
Efficient and transparent operations based on volunteering
With the exception of modest annual audit and filing charges, Research for Life does not incur any operating costs. All work performed is based on pure volunteering, with REYL & Cie providing logistical back-up. This allows Research for Life to focus on what matters most: getting funds fast to the projects that it supports.
