Hosting WWF "Our Planet: Too Big To Fail"

Our economy is fundamentally underpinned by the stability and resilience of nature. Due to systemic flaws in the very same economy, this stability is no longer guaranteed. Many investors and people working in the financial sector are increasingly aware of this. But how can the financial sector save the planet and therefore preserve its own long-term stability? And what can we do in the Netherlands? During the Pensioen Pro Partner Webinar, this will be explored. Created by the Emmy®️ Award-winning Silverback Films and WWF 'Our Planet: Too Big To Fail' explores, through interviews with sector leaders, the risks caused by natural loss, the impact of current investments and the role the financial sector can play in achieving a truly sustainable future.

ESG and Emerging Market Debt, een veelbelovende combinatie

Pension funds are on a global search for yield. In addition, they have to account for the growing importance of ESG, due to changing investor preferences and legislation such as the European SFDR-directive. In this respect, Emerging Market Debt (EMD) offers ample opportunities. The risk-return profile of this asset class is much better than investors realize. The combination with ESG may offer some challenges, but the advantages far outweigh these. Two experts of BMO Global Asset Management, a pioneer in ESG in Emerging Markets, will gladly share with you their experience and insights on ESG and EMD.

This webinar will address the most relevant questions about investing in EMD within an ESG-framework. What are the challenges and the opportunities? What is the best way to implement ESG in Emerging Market Debt, also as an Article 8 strategy? How can you take part in the growth and return potential of Emerging Markets and at the same time control the risks? How about diversification if strong ESG values lead to a much smaller investment universe? And how can we prepare best for the new SFDR guidelines in this segment?

Rising Inflation and the Opportunities and Threats for Dutch Pension Funds 

A reversal of the global inflation trend is imminent. Inflation forecasts are rising rapidly, and this is confronting pension providers with major decisions. Inflation affects asset returns worldwide, and local inflation is a key determinant of real pension outcomes. Head of Fixed Income Portfolio Management Gerard Fitzpatrick and investment strategist Jaap Hoek of Russell Investments will provide tips, insights and expectations in a Pension Pro Partner Seminar on 10 May on inflation, every investor's arch enemy.

The seminar will address the most relevant questions about inflation. Will the Covid-19 approach cause a turnaround in inflation? What is the impact of the rapidly rising inflation expectations in the United States? Will Europe soon follow? How will this affect pension funds' global bond portfolios and how can they respond? Will they have to adjust their tactical asset allocation as well as their strategic one? How will the new pension contract in the Netherlands affect this?

Rente in het nieuwe stelsel

Ook in het nieuwe pensioenstelsel blijft het renterisico gewoon bestaan. Maar gaan we straks meer of minder renterisico afdekken? Of meer voor ouderen en juist minder voor jongeren? Is dat wel zo logisch als op het eerste gezicht lijkt? En wat moeten fondsen doen met hun renteafdekking in aanloop naar het nieuwe stelsel. Deze en verwante vragen bespreken we in de volgende aflevering van Pensioen Pro Live op woensdag 23 juni, van 14 tot 15 uur.

In deze editie van Pensioen Pro Live: Dominique Dijkhuis, bestuurder bij pensioenfondsen DNB en PMT, Marcel Kruse, Director of Portfolio Solutions bij Milliman, Marcel Lever, adviseur nieuwe pensioenstelsel bij de Pensioenfederatie.

Beleggen in het nieuwe pensioenstelsel, van lifecycle tot rendementstoedeling

Het nieuwe pensioenstelsel biedt op papier meer beleggingsvrijheid, als de deelnemer het wil, en afhankelijk van de keuze van het contract. Maar wat is in de praktijk het verschil tussen lifecycle en rendementstoedeling en hoe zit het met illiquide beleggingen? En moeten pensioenfondsen in de transitiefase al actie ondernemen in de beleggingsportefeuille? 

In deze editie van Pensioen Pro Live: Suzanne van de Bor, Senior Investment Manager bij DNAPF, Pieter Westland, hoofd Investment Strategy bij Blue Sky Group en Anton Wouters, Senior Client CIO Nederland bij BNP Paribas Asset Management.

Het Nieuwe Contract vs Verbeterde Premieregeling

Wat gaat het worden? Het nieuwe contract, de verbeterde premieregeling of toch maar allebei? Er is veel discussie over de twee contracten in het nieuwe stelsel. Zijn er wel echte verschillen? En hoe belangrijk zijn die bij de keuze die sociale partners en fondsen moeten maken? Hoe onderscheidend zijn zaken als solidariteitsreserve, rendementstoedeling en keuzemogelijkheden?

Daarover gaan hoofdredacteuren André de Vos en Maarten van Wijk in deze editie van Pensioen Pro Live in gesprek met Dick Boeijen, actuaris bij PGGM, Agnes Joseph, actuaris bij Achmea Pensioenservices en Reiniera van der Feltz, uitvoerend bestuurder bij SBZ Pensioen.

Invaren in het nieuwe stelsel, de haken en ogen

Pensioen Pro besteedt uitgebreid aandacht aan de wetgeving voor het nieuwe pensioenstelsel. Op 24 februari gaan we in een speciale aflevering van Pensioen Pro Live uitgebreid in op de discussie rond het invaren van oude rechten. Is de nieuwe wetgeving duidelijk en uitvoerbaar, welke vragen leven er bij de pensioensector en is eerlijk en evenwichtig invaren voor iedereen eigenlijk geen utopie?

Over deze vragen discussiëren we met onder meer Casper van Ewijk (emeritus hoogleraar economie, UvA), Eline Lundgren (voorzitter pensioenfonds Landbouw) en Nicolette Opdam (partner/advocaat financial services bij HVG Law). 

De discussie wordt geleid door André de Vos en Maarten van Wijk. Kijkers kunnen via de chat meepraten en vragen stellen.

Diversification in Times of Crisis

Diversify, diversify, diversify: this is the creed for pension funds the world over. But does diversification really live up to expectations? In times of crisis correlation between different asset classes turns out to be much higher than anticipated. Should we change the way we look at diversification?
