Netspar Pleased to Welcome PGB Pension Fund as a New Partner
Per direct, PGB Pension Fund will join Netspar as a new partner, strengthening our network. This also furthers our aim of coming into more direct contact with pension fund managers.
Jochem Dijckmeester, board member at PGB Pension Fund, says, “We think it’s important to share knowledge. Through our connection to Netspar, we become quickly informed of new, innovative ideas about pensions that could be useful for our members and employers. We are happy about the prospects the partnership offers us. And we believe that we also have something to offer academics, professionals, and researchers in the pension industry. For one thing, we manage both defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) plans.”
Managing Director Casper van Ewijk: “We are delighted with the accession of PGB Pension Fund. Our mission is to contribute to the continuous improvement of the possibilities for financing the ‘old age’ in the Netherlands. Our partners play an important role in this. In addition to a financial contribution, they are also very actively involved in research and knowledge sharing. With the partnership of PGB Pension Fund we are taking a step in our ambition to be in direct contact with pension fund managers. It is a nice signal to other not yet joined directors and pension funds.”
In the first instance, PGB’s partnership will run until April 2019. The intention is to remain a partner in the period of the Work Program 2019-2023 as well. Through the new partnership PGB Pension Fund is involved in the research agenda of Netspar and has access to projects, meetings and expertise of the knowledge network.
