APG is a pension provider that organizes the pensions for 4.5 million people on behalf of its clients, providing the pensions of one in every five families in the Netherlands. APG works for participants in education, the government, construction, the cleaning and window-cleaning sector, housing corporations, power providers, and public utilities and social work provision. APGmanages just over 400 billion euros in pension assets for these sectors, working for over 30,000 employers, providing an income to approximately 4.5 million participants. APG administrates over 30% of all collective pension schemes in the Netherlands. Group pension schemes and social security systems have been undergoing major changes in recent years and are increasingly interdependent. That is why APG recently expanded its services to include employer services in the areas of pensions, social security and consultancy. You can find more information on the Employer Services website. APG currently offers its clients executive consultancy, asset management, pension administration, pension communication and employer services.
APG’s motto is “Tomorrow is today.” This conveys the message that APG works hard every day to ensure tomorrow’s pensions. It also underlines that a good investment strategy and sound pension management today form the basis for a good pension in the future. The motto furthermore constitutes the guideline for APG’s corporate social responsibility. The management approach in part focuses on creating a livable world for current and future generations. Sustainable regional development is one of the reasons why APG has—as founding father alongside Maastricht University and the Province of Limburg—taken the initiative to develop the Smart Services Campus in Heerlen.
APG strives for innovations in the financial/administrative cluster, developing smart services which ensure that 4.5 million clients receive advice tailored to their specific situation instead of standard solutions. Talent development and employment are a second important motivation for participating in the Smart Services Campus. Developing, training and retaining young professionals is a priority for APG—asustainable working climate for the generations of today and tomorrow.
