NETHERLANDS - Leo Lueb (pictured) will succeed Marjolein Sol as director of equities at PGGM.
Sol, who is leaving for a one-year sabbatical leave, will continue at PGGM in a new post on her return.
Lueb will assume his new position on 1 November. Since September 2001 he has served PGGM as advisor to the director investments, interim manager fixed income, and head of the absolute return fund.
Since January 2004, he has been closely involved in the further development of the equities department.
The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) has announced it will shrink its board by more than one-third as part of a governance overhaul to make it "agile and more appropriate".
Smaller FTSE 350 defined benefit (DB) schemes were nearly 15 percentage points less well-funded than larger schemes in 2017, according to a Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM) analysis.
The advent of collective pension systems could help the UK avoid demographic challenges which will make it "impossible" for society to help savers in retirement, experts say.
