Market developments in 2023

The year 2023 was characterised by more stability in global stock markets compared to the turbulent stock market year 2022. Expectations were not high initially, but 2023 turned out to be a good year for investors. Interest rates, which were still rising in early 2023, fell towards the end of the year. This trend, along with falling inflation rates and the rise of technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), gave investors confidence and contributed to value gains in equity markets.

Smart Investing: Tailoring to your stage of life

The investment funds are part of a lifecycle. A lifecycle is a mix of investments. As part of the mix, we match the investments to your age and make sure you invest slightly less risky the closer you get to your retirement date. This means we change the allocation of investment funds so that investment risk is reduced. For example, if you are young, you automatically invest more in the Rendement fund, which tries to achieve a return. This is important for accruing a good pension. As you get closer to your retirement date, you invest more in Matching funds. The aim of these funds is to reduce risks and keep the purchasing power of your pension as steady as possible.
