Funded assets

In this system beneficiaries save for their own pension. Premiums are set aside and saved in funds and the assets and returns constitute the so-called pension provisions (pillars 2 and 3) and are the basis for the pension withdrawal.  This system is sensitive to developments on financial markets, but not to demographic change. In many other countries, funded pensions account for a much smaller share of pension provisions than in the Netherlands.
