This paper by Lans Bovenberg (TiU), Ryanne Cox (DNB) and Stefan Lundbergh (Cardano) sets out to investigate what the Netherlands can learn from the Swedish experience in designing occupational pensions. What are ‘best practices’ that can be of interest in the current Dutch debate? What are the pitfalls to be avoided? As part of the current quest in the Netherlands to create a more sustainable pension system with more tailor-made solutions, the Swedish collectively insured occupational pensions may provide useful insights.
