Trust in pension funds: The determinants of general trust in pension funds and the transfer to the trust in one’s own pension fund

  • Iris Veldman Iris Veldman

This thesis analyses the main factors that make up general trust in pension funds and the trust in one’s own pension fund as a renewal of the research done by Gärling et al in 2009, where they found that competence, stability, integrity and benevolence were the most important determinants of trust in pension funds. The main  determinants that make up general trust in pension funds in my  research are Integrity, Stability and Competence. These main determinants of general trust transfer to the trust in one’s own pension fund. Value congruence also has an effect on the trust in pension funds, but this effect is not as large as the effects of integrity, stability and competence.
