Market & Opportunities
200 Pension Funds with AUM of €1700bn                                            
The Netherlands has approximately 200 pension funds/Pension Delivery Organisations managing total AUM of well over €1,700bn. 
 

The number of traditional pension funds has declined to roughly 190. Some assets have shifted to new Pension Delivery Organizations such as APFs (over €20bn AUM) and PPIs (nearly €16bn AUM) but the bulk of AUM is managed by a shrinking number of ever larger pension funds. 

The top five have combined assets under management of €1,036bn, while nearly 100 pension funds are managing >€1bn (as of end Q1 2021).

                                           
Key people                                            
The Dutch pensions & investment sector employs roughly 20,000 of which 5,000 are key people/decision makers including CIOs, fiduciary managers and pension fund top executives. 
With 15,500 paying subscribers, 12,000 newsletter recipients and 23,000 monthly online users Pensioen Pro reaches an estimated 90+% of the market and key players.  
Opportunities                                            

In our latest (2020) outsourcing survey 78% of pension funds indicate that they have fully outsourced their asset management, with another 14% responding that their assets are managed in part by external managers. 

Even allowing for a handful of very large pension schemes managing up to ¾ of their portfolios in-house, considering that mandates are reviewed every 3 years this means that in any given year €300bn may potentially come to market.
