The model of the Commissie Parameters 2022 for Dutch Pension funds

The slides shown at the event can be found here.

In the period from February to December 2022, I was a member of the 2022 Parameters Committee. This committee has issued an advice to Minister Schouten of Social Affairs and Employment on the calculation model (“the scenario sets”) that pension funds use to measure the impact of the transition from the old to the new pension system. The law states that this transition must be balanced for all participants in the pension fund, and pension funds must use the calculation model to demonstrate that the transition plan meets the requirements. The link to the report is here.
