About ABP

For over 100 years, ABP has been the pension fund for people working in government and education. One in six people in the Netherlands currently receives a pension from ABP, a trend expected to carry into the future. Our participants want us to invest their pension money sustainably, and preferably in the Netherlands. ABP is no ordinary investor: we serve a financial and social interest on behalf of our participants. ABP would like to invest in more social solutions to ensure stability and sustainability for the Netherlands.
