Comparative Research Grants Awarded
Lessons from other countries can be valuable for the Dutch pension debate. The purpose of Netspar’s Comparative Research Grants is to compare regulations and product options in different countries and relate these to the academic literature. We received seven applications, which were evaluated by the program coordinators.
The Netspar Board of Directors has now adopted the recommendations of the program coordinators and awarded the following CRG projects:
- Comparison of the Portfolio Decisions of Participants in U.S. 401(k) Pension Plans with the Asset Allocation of Dutch Pension Plans, Aleksandar Andonov (EUR), Mike Qinghao Mao (Deakin, AUS)
