Online After Lunch Taskforce meeting: Risk capacity measurement: a review of the scientific literature and application using Dutch administrative data

Netspar organizes this online After Lunch Taskforce Meeting for partners and employees of partners. Researchers will outline their latest retirement research and then receive feedback and answer questions. It is just another way we bring science, academics, and professional practice closer together.

In this After Lunch Taskforce Meeting by Raun van Ooijen (Universitair Medisch Centrum Groningen) you will learn more about Risk capacity: new insights and implications based on Dutch administrative Data.  Questions and input on this ongoing research are most welcome.

This research is being conducted together with Rob Alessie (RUG), Marike Knoef (TU), Gonzalo Paz-Pardo (ECB).

The new Dutch pension system requires pension providers to determine an appropriate investment risk profile for different groups of participants, depending on their ability to bear investment risk (risk capacity) and their risk preferences (risk tolerance).

While the measurement of risk preferences is well established, there is a need for a well-established measure of risk capacity that pension funds and insurers can apply. Recent Netspar research (Alessie, Angelini & Kleinhuis) makes an important contribution but concludes that detailed administrative data from Statistics Netherlands (CBS) are required to put insights into practice.
