Funding ratio May 2020
Over the last month the (actual) funding ratio slightly increased from 91.3% to 92.9%. This indicates that although the financial situation does not deteriorate further, it also does not improve yet. Rates seem to show a bit more optimism, but interest remains low, however. The market continues to be very volatile, with large upward and downward fluctuations.
In order to recover towards a funding ratio of at least 100% we need higher investment results and the low interest to increase. Whether this is likely to happen in the short term remains to be seen. The Board of APF
Pension Fund adhere to the long term investment policy and do their utmost to steer the pension fund through this crisis. Although we remain hopeful to achieve a timely recovery, the financial situation is not stable yet. Of course we closely monitor the situation and will keep you informed of developments.
