Workshop: Can pension funds help mobilize housing capital?
This is a dutch speaking event.
At the moment, approximately € 1200 billion is huge in the surplus value of owner-occupied homes in the Netherlands. This workshop is about mobilizing that housing capital. Together we explore the role of pension funds in using this surplus value to make the housing stock more sustainable and to strengthen the financial resilience of households.
Netspar researchers Marike Knoef (Tilburg University), Mauro Mastrogiacomo (DNB), and Casper van Ewijk (UvA) present new research into the state of cashing in equity in the Netherlands, the importance for individual households in their financial life planning, and the role which pension funds and other private investors have enjoyed in the meantime.
During the workshop we can learn from each other how the housing capital can be better used for individual social goals.
