Funding ratio of pension funds reached 89.6%
At the end of the first quarter of 2020, the average funding ratio of the Dutch pensions stood at 89.6% (see Figure 1). The funding ratio reflects a pension fund’s current financial position, expressing the ratio between available assets and liabilities.
Their average policy ratio stood at 99.7%. The policy funding ratio is the average of the funding ratios for the past twelve months. It fell because the funding ratios in the first quarter of 2020 were lower than those in the corresponding quarter of 2019.
