SPF's investment beliefs can be found on the following website (Dutch):

SPF: http://www.spoorwegpensioenfonds.nl/Portals/1/Content/Over%20het%20SPF/Documents/2014/Beleggings%20beliefs.pdf

At SPF we apply an active investment strategy in which we only invest in high-quality companies. As a pension fund we think the long-term time frame of our liabilities should be matched by our investments. As part of this strategy our asset manager, SPF Beheer, manages the internally managed part of the equity and credit portfolios in an active manner. It is not the benchmark but the attractiveness of the investments themselves that guides our investment decisions. We for example invest in only 60-70 stocks of which we believe they are quality investments for a longer period of time. We aim to be shareholder of a company for at least seven years. This means we have to find companies that provide financially sound and stable returns ánd behave in a socially responsible manner. We believe that companies that disregard their social obligations will suffer, also financially, in the long run.

01.6. Provide a brief description of the key elements, any variations or exceptions to your investment policy that covers your responsible investment approach. [Optional]

All these descriptions and documents are simplified in order to make them more accessible to our participants and the general public.

Additionally, we have consciously decided not to publish our detailed guidelines on E, S and G factors. This would result in an overload of information to our participants. Much of these guidelines are comparable with the items mentioned in our proxy voting policy. The formalized guidelines on environmental, social and corporate governance factors are available upon request.

The Spoorwegpensioenfonds only has a board. The content of the conflict of interest policy of the board of SPF is:

- Every (potential) conflict of interest has to be reported to the compliance officer.

- Transactions with an/or gifts received from (potential) clients and/or relations of SPF have to be reported.

- Personal investment transactions can in no means be executed based on insider information. The compliance officer  has the right to research all personal investment transactions of board members.

- The compliance officer has the right to research any transaction, gift and (potential) conflict of interest. The results of this research will be reported to the CEO and, if necessary, the Supervisory Board. Sanctions (from warnings to immediate dismissal) are involved for not complying with the conflict of interest policy.

- The conflict of interest policy, jointly with the code of conduct, have to be reviewed and signed every year by all board members.
