Pension Fund

A Pension Fund refers to a pool of capital set aside by an organization to fund the retirement benefits and pensions of its employees. Major European pension funds are among the biggest institutional investors in private equity and venture capital globally. Examples include the UK's Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS), the Netherlands' ABP pension fund, Sweden's AP Funds and Germany's Bayerische Versorgungskammer (BVK). European pension funds allocate a portion of their sizable assets to PE/VC funds to diversify their portfolios and seek higher returns. PE/VC investments can help pension funds enhance yields to meet their long-term pension obligations. However, they carry higher risks than traditional public equity and fixed income.
