PGGM Investments

Excellent execution

Striving for maximum value creation

As PGGM Investments, we do everything to secure a good, affordable and sustainable pension for our clients’ participants. It is how we can add societal value. That is why it is essential for us and our clients that our execution is always of the highest quality. And that we handle our clients’ investments ethically as well. That we handle our clients' investments with integrity is another.


Compliance & integrity

Clients, supervisory authorities, society and other stakeholders expect that PGGM conducts itself in accordance with the applicable legislation and regulations and internal standards of conduct. Compliance is PGGM Investments’ licence to operate and is also a material topic for us. In order to shape this, PGGM Investments once again pursued a proactive compliance and integrity policy in 2020.

Societal context

PGGM Investments operates in a highly regulated sector. This demands constant attention from management and supervision of compliance with legislation and regulations. Especially since this regulation is only expected to become stronger and stricter in the next several years.
