"These risk analyses will be used for corporate pension risk assessment and to support the plan in formulating effective long-term investment strategies," ORTEC added.
Managing director Fred Heemskerk said: "The selection of PALM by the ABN AMRO Pension Fund shows that there is a growing need for Asset Liability Management modelling expertise to make efficient strategic decisions."
