The older you are, the less risk we take with your pension money. This gives you more certainty about the amount of your pension. From the age of 47, we gradually reduce the investment risk. The share of business values (shares and real estate) continues to decrease and the fixed income part of long-term and medium-term is gradually increasing. Fixed income securities (e.g. bonds) are less risky than corporate assets and generally achieve a lower yield. Because fixed income securities are less risky, the accrual of your pension capital is more stable.
The figure below shows the investment mix for a stable pension per age group.
