NETHERLANDS - Investment & Pensions Europe is adding a new publication to its investment and pensions stable, known as IPNederland - a standalone Dutch-language publication covering the pensions and institutional investment arena in The Netherlands.

Set to launch in March/April, IPNederland will bring to the Dutch marketplace the same breadth and depth of coverage IPE is known for, but its focus will be on the issues of concern to the pensions community in the Netherlands, both domestic and international.

The publication will be produced bi-monthly and will have its own Dutch-language editorial team dedicated to covering that latest news developments as well as a full range of authoritative and comprehensive features. IPN will conduct surveys and undertake in-depth analyses of the latest happenings in the marketplace.

When relevant, IPN will be able to call on the resources of Investment & Pensions Europe to provide the broader coverage of the leading title in European pensions and investment coverage.

Mariska van der Westen joins IPN in February as editor. She is an experienced Dutch language editor, who has specialised in recent years in covering pensions issues in the Dutch market. She will be working closely with IPE Editor Liam Kennedy, who is also a Dutch-speaker and will have overall responsibility for IPE editorially.

"IPN will provide the Dutch market with a publication that is able to respond to the changes in this fast-moving marketplace and deliver the quality of information and analysis that pension practitioners need to meet the challenges facing them," said Van der Westen.

"Our aim is to deliver a publication that will provide in one place precisely the material that Dutch funds and investment managers require. We are putting in place a team under Mariska to produce the news and feature coverage that meets the high-level expectations of our readers in The Netherlands," said Kennedy.

IPN is to have a separate Dutch circulation of around 6,000 copies per issue. It will be delivered to professionals at pension funds, insurance companies, asset managers, consultants, custodians and other service providers.
