Stichting Pensioenfonds UWV signs letter of intent with Kempen for fiduciary services

In 2016, Pf UWV started a tendering process for the selection of a party that would best match the pension fund’s core quality and quantity criteria. Following an extensive selection procedure, Kempen was chosen. A number of important themes included unburdening, strategic investment advice, and counterbalancing underlying managers, both for liquid and illiquid categories. Additional factors that played an important role were innovation and the ability to contribute on a strategic level when it comes to changes in the pensions industry.


Wilse Graveland, responsible for pension solutions in the Netherlands at Kempen, stated: ‘We have gone through an intensive selection procedure with Pf UWV. Besides substantive elements, the match on a personal level and the mutual interaction played an important role. A timely and adequate response to changing conditions requires a proactive approach and the ability to identify trends in the market. We cooperate closely with our clients for this purpose.’

Paul Gerla, Chairman of the Board of Kempen, stated: ‘A long-term focus is key to Kempen, and fiduciary management is no exception. We are excited about the prospect of working for and with Pf UWV. We consider this a true partnership, one that will prove future-proof in the current, dynamic world of pensions. Furthermore, it is our ambition to strengthen and expand Kempen’s position in the pensions market.’
