Private debt for pension funds

Pension funds play a pivotal role in providing adequate pensions for all. First pillar benefits are under enormous pressure. It has become apparent that supplementary occupational pensions are becoming a “must have” for everyone. PensioPlus therefore pleads for a generalization and deepening of 2nd pillar pensions while preserving the fiscal framework and the vested rights of the members to make supplementary pensions more accessible and transparent for everyone.  

While fulfilling their important social function in providing pensions, pension funds also act as a stabilizing factor within the financial markets in times of crisis given their anti-cyclical investment policy. 

Pensions are long term liabilities and therefore pension funds are long term investors.  Therefore pension funds can include in their asset allocation asset classes that other financial market participants have more difficult to incorporate.  They can benefit from the illiquidity premium of some asset classes.  Private debt is one of those assets that can be used by pension funds. In this session we will go more into detail on the pros and cons of this investments, the legal framework and the different options pension funds have when making use of this asset class.
