Our clients are pension funds, PPIs (Premium Pension Institutions), insurers, consultancy firms, pension fund’s administrators, corporates and regulators.
Since our start in 2008 we successfully completed more than 400 positions (from junior to senior).
Relevant knowledge and experience are important in the profile of a candidate. However, one’s personality is the deciding factor. So for that reason, we pay extra attention to that aspect.
In order to examine the competences, we use, among other things, personality questionnaires in which we identify five personality traits (also known as the Big Five model). The Big Five model is the most researched and scientifically validated model in this field. The five personality traits that are examined are: neuroticism, extraversion, openness, altruism and conscientiousness.
Based on discussions with the client, we draw up an ideal personality profile for each job. With the results of the Big Five and the selection interviews, we get a good insight into the personality profile of the candidate. It helps us to make the right match between the ideal personality profile and the candidate.
As professionals and for personal interest in pensions, we are active members of various networks (Pension Specialists Association, Actuarial Association). We are very much aware of the latest developments in pensions, new functions that arise in the changing pension landscape and changes in existing positions with new tasks and responsibilities.
We also make an active contribution to organisations such as PensioenLab and Dutch Economic Forum.
PensioenLab was founded in 2014 by the Youth Trade Unions CNV Jongeren, FNV Jong and VCP Young Professionals. The objective is to promote the interests of young people in the pension debate. PensioenLab ensures that young people have a say in and co-decide on pensions and the future of the pension system. In order to enthuse young people for a position in a pension fund or accountability council, the foundation has set up the PensioenLab Academy. From Groen Van Solinge, Aad supports the PensioenLab Academy in the field of selecting future board members.
Peter is one of the initiators of the Dutch Economic Forum (DEF). Participants in this platform talk about issues at the crossroads of pension, care and housing from the point of view of large social engagement. With the objective of gaining inspiration, sharing knowledge and taking responsibility in the development of practically applicable ideas and building blocks. This is how the participants want to contribute to a sustainable society. The DEF regularly organises round table meetings with a maximum of 10 participants in which current developments are discussed in depth.
