RELATED TOPICS​

Pensioenfonds ING, a corporate pension fund based in the Netherlands with approximated EUR28 million and nearly 70,000 participants, has selected Robeco, a global asset management firm, as a partner in its sustainable investments policy.

Pensioenfonds ING is the now-closed pension fund in which current and former employees of ING Bank and NN Group accrued pensions until 2014.
 
Robeco will advise Pensioenfonds ING on a range of ESG-related issues including policy, legislation and regulations and carrying out voting and engagement activities.
 
In collaboration with Corestone Investment Managers, an independent institutional asset management company, Robeco will provide ESG screening and reporting activities on the total portfolio. These measures will help Pensioenfonds ING reach its long-term goal of ensuring a good pension for all participants in a sustainable fashion.
 
Wim van Iersel, Executive Director Pensioenfonds ING, says: “We want to give substance to the pension agreements that ING Bank and NN Group have placed with us for their current and former employees. In this context, sustainability is an important aspect that will only become more important in the future. We look forward to working with Robeco in the field of sustainable investing.”
 
André van den Heuvel, Head of Institutional Clients NL & Nordics Robeco, says: “With Pensioenfonds ING, we have found a partner that, just like us, attaches great importance to sustainable investment solutions. We share the conviction that a holistic ESG approach that includes all facets of sustainability leads to better substantiated and consistent investment decisions, with the aim of realising a good pension for participants of Pensioenfonds ING. The combination of the various ESG facets makes this a unique collaboration and a good match. We are delighted with the confidence that the pension fund has placed in our knowledge and experience, and look forward to implementing this together.”
