The equity portfolios of Dutch pension funds and insurers have become significantly “greener” over the 2017-2020 period. This is mainly because investee companies have emitted less carbon over that period, according to an analysis by De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB).
At DNB we provide statistical data on the Dutch financial sector and the Dutch balance of payments. With these data, statistics and our expertise, we enable policy makers, researchers and other interested parties to monitor developments and achieve societal goals better.
For example, we provide the latest financial and economic statistics on household savings, mortgage interest rates and foreign direct investment. We also publish data based on supervisory information, such as the average funding ratio of pension funds.
In our statistical news releases you can read about current developments. And our thematic dashboards give graphical presentations of various data. You can also use the “Data search” option to access the data yourself. Here you can look up and download data and even embed them in other websites.
The Dutch current account balance of €13.9 billion (6% of GDP based on three-year averages) in the third quarter of 2022 was €0.3 billion lower than a year earlier, according to figures from DNB.
Dutch non-bank financial services providers provided €401 billion in financing in 2021, 14% less than in 2020. This left the sector as large as one-sixth of the Dutch banking system, accounting for 1% of global non-bank financing.
