Using the years ahead to make a strong start with the new pension system

With the introduction of a new pension system within a few years, pensions in the Netherlands are set for an overhaul. For our members, this involves drawing their pension from an individual pension reserve – possibly as early as 1 January 2024. In the face of this new reality, the Board of Trustees of Philips Pensioenfonds has considered how this change will affect the pension fund’s policies. Normally speaking, the pension fund’s policies are geared toward the long term. However, the changes to the system in the short term forces us to deviate from our long-term policy on several points, to make sure that our members can start strongly under the new pension system. Read on to find out more about the decisions that the Board of Trustees has made for the years ahead.

Data breach at our pension provider

Philips Pensioenfonds recently had to deal with a data breach. Unauthorized persons briefly had access to the mailbox of an employee of our pension provider Blue Sky Group. The employee in question works in a department that does not have personal e-mail contact with participants. Nevertheless, there is some leaked participant data. This data is personal and not intended for the outside world. Participants must be able to trust that their (personal) data is in good hands with us. We are very sorry that this leak has occurred. External specialists are investigating the extent of the data breach. In this report we explain the steps Philips Pensioenfonds has taken in response to the data breach.

Annual Report 2020 is published

In March 2020, there was great uncertainty in the financial markets due to the corona crisis. That also affected our buffers. The actual funding ratio of Philips Pensioenfonds was around 100% at that time. This means that there was exactly enough capital to be able to pay all accrued pensions, now and in the future. So there were no more buffers. During the year, the situation on the financial markets gradually improved. We have, of course, closely followed market developments. We have adjusted our investment portfolio where necessary. The actual funding ratio subsequently recovered well, returning to pre-crisis levels at the end of 2020.
