Funding ratio October 2022

In the past month the (actual) funding ratio rose from 123.6% to 124.4%. As the return on investments was positive, the invested capital increased. The actuarial principles were adjusted in October. Important issues with this adjustment are the higher life expectations and the higher expense of provisions due the increased inflation. This increased the provisions. At the same time, the interest rates increased at the end of October, resulting in a decrease in the provisions. The increase in the invested capital was greater than the changes to the provisions. This has resulted in an increase of the coverage ratio. Provisions refer to the money that the pension fund has to reserve in order to be able to pay out all pensions in the future.
