NETHERLANDS - A new Dutch body could be created to export the country's pensions' expertise, according to reports.
The finance ministry is thought to be considering creating a centre of excellence, which would be headed by Arthur Doctors van Leeuwen, chairman of the Dutch regulatory body, AFM.
No further details on the structure of the proposed organisation were available as Global Pensions went to press.
Earlier this year, Global Pensions revealed Dutch pension funds were hunting more yield through alpha strategies and alternatives in reaction to the introduction of the FTK (Financial Assessment Framework) solvency rules.
The announcement came from Jos Heuvelman, director of the pension fund supervision division of the pensions regulator.
