niederlandeThe asset managers for the largest Dutch pension funds are supporting the government’s €1.7bn investment fund Invest-NL, which was launched last week.

APG, the €534bn asset manager for civil service scheme ABP, said Invest-NL could help transform projects from drawing board ideas into investable propositions for institutional investors.

This could be achieved through carrying financial risks market players are not willing to take.

It added that the investment vehicle could also bring public and private stakeholders together.
