Meetings of the Benelux Forum first started in The Netherlands in 1995 with the purpose of improving the quality of information available to pension fund managers leading to the development of more relevant and efficient management, a better understanding of investment processes and eventually, improved performance.
By bringing together pension fund representatives with service providers, robust and objective discussions have become the norm. All members may attend the meetings but a key requirement for all non-pension fund members and speakers is that product or services selling is not permitted.
There are two categories of membership. One for representatives of Pension Funds and similar Institutional Investors such as charities, foundations or other non-commercial organisations. Members include representatives of Belgium, Dutch, French and German Pension Funds as well as other European and multinational companies’ pension funds. The other is open to a limited number of other representatives from the pensions and investment industry.
