APG Asset Management is a Dutch pension investor. Our asset management is aimed at realizing a good and affordable pension for both current and future generations. Worldwide, we are one of the largest pension investors. Our clients benefit from economies of scale. It gives them access to investment options and external mandates (for example private equity and infrastructure) that would otherwise not be an option, or at least not at the same favourable conditions. With about 708 highly qualified employees working from the Netherlands, the USA and Asia, we have in-house expertise ensuring stable long-term returns.
APG's responsible investment policy is implemented across all asset classes. Every asset class requires a different approach. APG's responsible investment policy has three goals:
- To improve risk-adjusted financial return,
- To demonstrate social responsibility, and
- To help safeguard the integrity of financial markets.
