Financieele Dagblad, the Dutch financial daily, and IPNederland (Investments & Pensions Nederland) will be joining forces to further improve their services to the Dutch pensions industry.

Jointly, they will be able to optimise their offerings and meet Dutch pension professionals’ needs in terms of independent, reliable news, background stories and analysis.

In addition to the daily IPN Newsletter and bi-monthly IPNederland print magazine, the weekly e-magazine FD Pensioen Pro will be part of the joint portfolio.

Mariska van der Westen, editor of IPNederland, said she was delighted by the plans to collaborate with FD.

“The pensions industry is facing a range of challenges resulting in an ever-increasing need for solid, independent information,” she said.

“FD is the leading business daily in The Netherlands, while IPN is the leading information provider for the pensions industry. Collaborating with FD will allow us to optimise our ability to meet those needs.”

Eugenie van Wiechen, publishing director at FD Media Group, believes the product offerings are complementary.

“By combining IPNederland’s daily news, the weekly FD Pensioen Pro, IPN print magazines and a number of joint events, we will be able to further improve our services to Dutch pension professionals and help them connect directly with their peers.”
