The New Dutch Pension System - A good reform? POLICY UPDATE
This session aims to look at the changes to the pension system and ask whether a new system is a necessary and welcome development. We will also look at international comparisons as well as reforms currently being undertaken in other countries. Are the changes a positive step forward or an unnecessary change to one of the best capitalised pensions systems in the world?

Innovative, Forward-looking, Growth-oriented: Why Sustainable Investment can lead to Greater Returns
Currently, the world economy is moving on a steady growth path. The stock market rally is no longer only a result of higher valuations, but is also supported by robust earnings, For investors, the inclusion of sustainability criteria in the investment process can play an important role not only for responsibility, but also for investment opportunity reasons. The implementation of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals can also lead to better returns for investors by investing in future driven companies as well as doing something good for the society and the environment at the same time.

This conference will be conducted in English and will be targeted at Dutch and other Benelux pension funds, although pension funds and institutional investors from the UK and other parts of Europe are also welcome. We will seek to examine the most pressing and important challenges and opportunities facing the Dutch pension fund industry in a participatory setting that encourages questions, debate and discussion. We aim to include consideration of the performance potential of different strategies, practical issues and legislation.
