‘Dutch pension system at risk from IFRS’

The Dutch pension system is unlikely to be given preferential treatment by the international financial reporting standards IFRS, reports Monday’s Financieele Dagblad.

This follows a remark made by IFRS project leader Anne McGeachin in which she said she is not inclined to make an exception for the Netherlands.
Employers organisation VNO-NCW is worried that adherence to the IFRS rules will mean pension investment risks will no longer be shared between employer and employee.
