The perfect pension contract doesn’t exist

In the Netherlands, the debate over the existence of a single ‘perfect’ pension contract, offering equal terms for everyone, still fails to reach common ground. According to Roelie van Wijk, Chairman of Dufas and Head of Responsible Business & Public Affairs at Aegon Asset Management, this is a missed opportunity.

Pension funds and asset managers need to work harder together on the back end, but at the front end a pension can, without doubt, be tailored to the individual.
