Pension funds are facing a major challenge. They are being confronted by increasingly stringent accounting standards, regulation and legislation in relation to governance. Financial markets are becoming more and more complex too. These developments add to pension funds’ responsibilities and are forcing trustees to carefully consider the potential advantages of outsourcing certain investment tasks, whilst remaining in control of their pension fund. Since 1997, Robeco offers a customized solution to help trustees meet this challenge: Robeco Fiduciary Management.
