By once again investing a significant amount, we emphasise our confidence in SCW. This investment also fits well with PFZW’s decision earlier this year to invest more in companies that make a positive impact on the energy transition. This contributes to a good pension for everyone who accrues a pension with PFZW.”

PFZW is responsible for managing the pension policy and pension assets of around 2.9 million current and former employees in the health and welfare sector. 

The pension fund oversees invested assets totalling €242.4B as of the end of March 2024.
