Our financial situation

Various factors affect our financial situation, with the coverage ratio serving as a key indicator. This reflects the relationship between assets and liabilities.

 

In the dashboard, you will find ABP’s financial snapshot as of May 31, 2024:

Current coverage ratio
115.1%
groene pijl omhoog

1,7 % higher than in April 2024

Policy coverage ratio
114.0%
Groene pijl omhoog

0,1% higher than in April 2024

The current coverage ratio shows whether ABP has sufficient funds to meet present and future pension liabilities. A 100% coverage ratio means ABP has precisely €100 in assets for every €100 in pension liabilities. This ratio guides decisions on potential collective value transfers.

The policy coverage ratio is the 12-month rolling average of the coverage ratios. This guides decisions on individual value transfers and pension indexation.

Higher than 110 %

The policy coverage ratio is high enough for indexation.

Lower than 110 %

The policy coverage ratio is not high enough for indexation.
