Risk preference research
According to the law, Dutch pension funds must ask their participants how much risk they are willing to take, at least every five years. Insurers and premium pension institutions can voluntarily conduct risk preference research as well. This approach provides input for selecting the right asset mix, designing life cycles and gauging risk-bearing abilities. It also offers additional detailed segmentation options.

Analysis with actuarial input from Achmea Pension Services
“The results showed that most were willing to accept a certain amount of risk, but what amount of risk? And which investment mix would best fit their risk profile? That was difficult to deduce from our previous method of research.”
