As per 1 February 2006 Zanders and Bureau Bosch entered into a strong alliance. As being heavily committed to the Dutch pension fund industry both consultancies found that there is a great need for an independent and sophisticated party that can find solutions to the problems pension plans are facing today.
Bureau Bosch is established since 1992 and has built up a strong track record as an advisor to many pension plans. The bureau is specialized in the investment cycle particularly regarding the asset allocation, selection of asset managers, including monitoring, evaluation and after care. Buerau Bosch is well-known for its in depth knowledge as regards the Dutch institutional market, the parties and the products.
The increasing complexity of the investment process and the ever more critical involvement of stakeholders and controlling bodies implies that the management of pension plans becomes a very intensive and sophisticated activity. This is a reason for the ongoing trend towards more outsourcing of specific duties. By combining the knowledge and experience of Zanders and Bureau Bosch, there is now an independent party that can support the management of the pension plans in all aspects of their responsibility, going from governance, risk management, selections to control and after care.
