Selection and monitoring of external managers
Our External Managers Selection and Monitoring team is one of the most extensive in this field in the Netherlands.

Careful selection and monitoring of external managers starts by the requirements of our clients supported by strategic asset class studies and laid out in a portfolio and implementation plan. We select the most suitable external manager. Our aim, within the portfolio risk frameworks, is to select managers who achieve the highest returns over the long term. Our portfolio managers decide from quantitative and qualitative analyses and interviews whether the conditions at an asset manager are optimal to achieve the best results for the future. Selection also includes an examination of operational risks.
Socially and environmentally responsible investment
Socially responsible investment is in our DNA. With our history and our social engagement, we make clear investment decisions. We apply five themes when shaping responsible investments: Human rights, Labour standards, Nature & the Environment, Health and Climate change. In addition, we are convinced that social and environmental responsible investments deliver better results over the long term. So we advise and assist pension funds as they develop and implement their own responsible investment policies.
