 Rom Foundation

The Rom Fund is a study fund for the local authorities` employees. Unlike the private funds, which are designed to increase the profits of the private elements who manage them, the Rom Fund was established for the advancement of the local authorities` employees solely. The fund`s finances are managed in Bank Hapoalim, which is an operating element only, whereas the fund`s decisions are made by a joint directorate of the Federation of Local Authorities in Israel and the MAOF Union [MAOF – Managers, Employees and Administrators].

The fund`s management is in the hands of the employees` and employers` representatives, which saves many expenses and ensures that the employees will enjoy a higher monetary credit in their private account.

This way, the fund maintains low management fees, compared with the high management fees private investment houses and insurance firms usually collect.
