NETHERLANDS - PGGM has confirmed it has stopped some of its classical alpha activities in liquid markets but says it will use the technique in other areas of investment.
He said: "We have seen the added value of splitting alpha and beta and are looking at new ways to create returns with lower correlation."
He added PGGM would maintain an active approach to asset classes such as infrastructure or sustainable investment.
PGGM would also continue to spearhead products ahead of market trends in areas such as responsible investment, according to the spokesman.
Earlier in February, PGGM announced it had bought into a collateralised loan obligation (CLO) transaction with ABN AMRO based on Brazilian debt.
