    Improved situation for pension funds

    The financial situation of the largest pension funds in the Netherlands has improved significantly in the first half of 2021 due to an higher interest rate and good investment results. In June, the pension funds for civil servants, the healthcare industry and construction had enough capital for the first time in a long time to bear their future pension liabilities – although July saw a relapse caused be a reduced interest rate. The coverage ratio – showing to what extent a pension fund is able to pay future pensions – rose above 100% in June, thereby reducing the chance of pension cuts being implemented on January 1, 2022. Only if the coverage ratio drops below 90% must pension funds implement mandatory pension cuts. However, in spite of the positive prospects thus far there are still many uncertainties and the indexation of pensions is currently not an option for many pension funds. Moreover, it is impossible to rule out that pension premiums won’t be increased in the (near) future.
