IPE and the publishers of Het Financieele Dagblad (FD), the leading Dutch financial publisher, have finalised a joint venture aimed at serving the pensions sector in the Netherlands.

The new entity, FD-IPNederland will serve Dutch pension professionals’ need for independent and reliable news, background and analysis.

FD-IPNederland combines the strengths of FD, the leading business newspaper of the Netherlands, and IPE’s Dutch language publication IPNederland, which is the leading news source for the Dutch pension sector.

Alongside IPNederland’s daily news service, the combined portfolio consists of the weekly FD Pensioen Pro and the bimonthly IPNederland print edition.


Eugenie van Wiechen, managing director of FD Mediagreop, expressed satisfaction with the agreement.

“The product offering of IPNederland and the FD are highly complementary,” she said.

“The creation of this joint venture gives our co-operation wings.”

Tim Potter, chief executive at IPE International Publishers, said: “We are convinced this joint venture allows us to serve this important market better.”

Mariska van der Westen, editor of IPNederland, has been given the task of leading IPNederland.

“This is a time of great challenges for the Dutch pension sector,” she said.

“A rapidly changing environment means the need for good, independent information has never been greater.

“Combining the strengths of FD and IPNederland in one organisation will allow us to meet that need better than ever.”
