PME funding ratio decreased

Our funding ratio decreased in the fourth quarter of 2022. The reason is that we increased pensions. In addition, the financial markets are still unsettled. The funding ratio indicates whether we have enough funds to pay all pensions. Now and in the future.

Major step toward new pension system

The House of Representatives supports the new pension system. It said so at the end of last year. Now it is up to the Senate to assess the new system. Is the majority of the Senate in favour of the new rules? Then pension funds will have until 1 January 2027 to switch to the new system. PME's pension scheme will also change. Trade unions and employers will decide on its content. In December, we investigated what people find important for their pension. We will share the results of the survey with you soon.

PME climate plan: there is no Planet B

Just like other pension funds, PME pays most of its pensions from returns on investments. Investing works best in a world that is not warming up any further. In a world where people are not fleeing drought, floods and hunger. In other words: a stable return requires a stable world. PME takes its responsibility in this respect, with ambitious climate targets and clear intermediate steps.
