On May 16th & 17th we are organizing the annual PensionTech Summit, which is sponsored and co-hosted by the city of The Hague. The PensionTech Summit is a result of the previous PensionTech Summit’s success and the general increased interest in the pensiontech sector. The two-day event kicks off on Tuesday May 16 in the afternoon and continues until Wednesday May 17 in the evening. All pension-related key stakeholders and interested parties will get together during these two days to depict where the pension industry is right now and how new, enabling technologies will impact the shaping of the industry in the years to come. The event’s program assists pension fund executives in understanding how and why to incorporate the right, new technologies.
