Expert Statement

My main area of expertise is the influence of financial markets on social provisions, such as pensions. I study the rules and regulations that shape the ways in which pension savings are invested. Another important focus is the role of employers, unions and members in pension investment policies. Finally, I am an expert in the politics and policies of sustainable finance, with a focus on large asset owners (e.g. pension funds). My research focuses on the Netherlands, other European countries and the United States.
