Check afterwards

The Accountability Council of the ABP pension fund provides the board with solicited and unsolicited advice, for example on sustainable investment and the way in which the ABP board should implement this. Afterwards, the body checks whether the board has acted correctly.

Associate professor Christoph Rausch, lecturer in business economics Agnes Tay and HBO lecturer Gerian Alofs occupy the three AOb-seats for the people who are still working. Tay comes with preferential votes in the Accountability Council, because she was number 4 on the list. In total, more than 12 ABP participants voted for a candidate from the AOb.
