NETHERLANDS – Dutch consulting outfit van Stuijvenberg Financial Services says it has signed a long-term cooperation contract with Mercer Investment Consulting.

Principal Jan Willem van Stuijvenberg said the US-based firm has obtained long-term licences enabling it to use his company’s risk software for all clients. Financial terms were not disclosed.

He said the two companies would “further develop the software to improve functionality” with improvements to be available for both Mercer and van Stuijvenberg clients.

“The cooperation is set up to improve and scale services while maintaining independence,” he said.

Van Stuijvenberg is an independent consultant who works with some of the Netherlands’ largest pension institutions, such as PME, Cordares and TKP Investments.
