We do invest in...

We invest in a large part of the world, with different types of investments. That way, we spread the risks associated with investing. And, where possible, we also invest close to home.

Investments in the Netherlands

Where possible, we want to invest in our own country. Close to home. We also invest in our own metal and technology industry.

Government bonds

Government bonds are loans to national governments. Such loans are valid for a limited period of time. Countries pay us interest on these loans at fixed points in time. At the end of the term, the country repays the loan. These investments are spread over different countries. The Netherlands and Germany are examples of safe countries, of which you can be sure that they always pay on time. Because of this, they pay less interest than some other countries, where the risk may be higher. We do not put money into countries subject to sanctions, such as an arms embargo, a travel ban or financial sanctions.

Below is a list of companies to which we have loaned money. This list is updated every three months.

Real estate

We invest directly in Dutch real estate. We own rental homes, particularly in the mid-rental segment. We also invest in retail. We earn money for your pension through the rent we receive. The increase in the value of real estate also generates money. 

In our real estate investments, we pay special attention to sustainability. Energy-efficient buildings contribute to healthier and more affordable living and working. Responsible construction also contributes to a good pension for you. Because sustainable real estate is worth more.  

In the rest of Europe and in the United States, we invest in property funds. These are baskets with different real estate projects. 

Below is a list of real estate in which we invest and where it is located. This list is updated every three months. 

Private equity

We also invest in companies outside the stock exchange. That makes us co-owner of a company through a manager. This costs more than other investments, but it often also comes with a higher return for your pension. This mainly happens if the companies are organised differently and better and then sell for a higher price.

Infrastructure

Our investments in infrastructure mainly consist of roads, railways, waterworks and electricity networks. For these investments, we often work with other investors, government authorities and construction companies. They really are investments for the longer term. We also invest in forestry.

Investing in the Netherlands

If at all possible, we like to invest in our own country. Close to home, in other words. We do the same in our own metal and tech industry.
