Dutch Pension Plan To Double Hedge Allocation

Jul 16 2007 | 11:47am ET

The Dutch Doctors Pension Funds Services is aiming to double its allocation to hedge funds by the end of the year.

The pension, which currently has 2% of its €13 billion (US$17.9 billion) in assets invested in hedge funds, has already begun the process of boosting that level, Global Pensions reports. The new allocation will be more wide-ranging that its current investments, which reportedly include only global tactical asset allocation and global macro.

DPFS hired ALM to investigate its hedge fund policy, with a study undertaken at the beginning of the year recommending both single-strategy and multi-strategy fund of hedge funds investments targeting a 10% to 15% return.
