This paper is the summary of a distributed ledger technology (DLT) assessment and its outcome. The assessment was commissioned by APG on behalf of a consortium of pension stakeholders who joined forces in the Pension Infrastructure (PI) project. The latter is a unique Dutch pension use case that aims at increasing operational efficiency, improving participant experience, and creating value for society.
The key question was: can we use DLT to better organise the Dutch pension system, and is it technically feasible? To answer it, we developed a custom framework, leading to distilled insights in the rapidly maturing and volatile DLT market. The assessment was carried out in Q1 2019 by APG, PGGM and Accenture. TNO has supported this effort through contributing knowledge and feedback throughout the process.
In 2018, APG has made significant progress in realizing our pension fund clients’ stated ambitions in the areas of sustainability and responsible investment. This relates, among other things, to the growth of our investments in the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and the progress that has been made in assessing all companies APG can invest in via shares or bonds on the basis of both financial and sustainability factors. These results were announced in the Responsible Investment Report 2018, published today.
