Financial behaviour of Dutch pension funds: a disaggregated approach
This paper examines the financial behaviour of 77 Dutch pension funds during 2002-2005. Using microdata, we investigate differences across various types of funds. Both the asset mix and the degree of home bias are related to the size of pension funds: large institutions invest more in equity and hold more foreign assets than smaller ones. Especially for industry-wide funds, bonds and equity transactions are consistent with rebalancing a strategically fixed asset mix. Finally, in the case of company-linked funds, a deterioration in the funding ratio is counteracted by a rapid increase in pension contributions. This response cannot be observed for industry-wide funds.
