Dutch pension fund PGGM is to cut 20-25% of 580 jobs in a reorganisation of its pension management division. The company reorganises in anticipation of the new Dutch pension system, which will take effect in 2026 and is expected to reduce the complexity of pension plans. As a result, the market for pension management is expected to become more competitive. Alongside preparations for the new pension system, PGGM aims to further digitalise its pension management processes, which will further reduce the number of jobs in the division.

PGGM is a Dutch providing pension management and asset management services to several pension funds, mostly in the healthcare sector. PGGM has 1500 employees.  

In 2004, PGGM restructured its IT department to improve its business efficiency, which led to about 100 job cuts in the Netherlands
