Blog: Bodies of the Pension Fund

17 December 2020 | Blog

The Heineken Pension Fund has three different bodies. We can imagine that you have questions about the tasks of these bodies and how your interests are represented by these bodies. In this blog we give you more information about this.

Which three bodies are there?

The Heineken Pension Fund has a Board, an Accountability Council (AC) and a Supervisory Board.


The Heineken Pension Fund has a board that is responsible for the policy (including, among other things, the investment policy). Within the framework of legislation and regulations, the board decides on raising or decreasing pensions, for example. The board consists of eight members. Two members are nominated by the Works Council on behalf of the employees, four members are nominated by the employer and two members are nominated by the pensioners. In this way, the employees as well as the employer and pensioners are represented in the board.

The Accountability Council

The Heineken Pension Fund has a AC. The AC assesses the policy pursued by the board and checks whether the interests of all participants are in balance. In addition, the AC has advisory rights with regard to a number of important decisions of the board. Just like the board, the AC consists of representatives of the employees, employer and pensioners.

The Supervisory Board

The Supervisory Board supervises the policy of the board. In addition, the Supervisory Board has approval rights with regard to a number of important board decisions, such as the check of the suitability of new board members. The Supervisory Board consists of three independent (external) members.
