We are a pension fund service provider and manage the pensions for different pension funds, the affiliated employers and their employees. On 31 December 2019, we managed pension assets worth EUR 252 billion.

We have set ourselves three important challenges: to devise a new sustainable pension contract, to communicate openly and honestly with our clients’ participants, and to ensure our costs are transparent.

The Dutch United Provinces declared their independence from Spain in 1579; during the 17th century, they became a leading seafaring and commercial power, with settlements and colonies around the world. After a 20-year French occupation, a Kingdom of the Netherlands was formed in 1815. In 1830, Belgium seceded and formed a separate kingdom. The Netherlands remained neutral in World War I, but suffered German invasion and occupation in World War II. A modern, industrialized nation, the Netherlands is also a large exporter of agricultural products.
