Risk management in funded pension systems

The recent financial crisis combined with ongoing increases in life expectancy has sparked a debate in the Netherlands concerning the future of the Dutch pension system. Pension funds, regulators, policy makers and insurance companies who are responsible for the third pillar in the pension system and PPI’s may have to work with newly defined pension contracts, new challenges in asset allocation due to longevity and inflation risk and prolonged adverse conditions on financial markets.

Our aim is therefore: to quantify the effects of changes in pension contracts, in risk measurement procedures and in the regulatory framework for different stakeholders in both the second and third pillar, using models which take explicit account of uncertainties in financial and demographic parameters.
