A natural evolution for IPE
IPE brings together pension funds and their service providers in print, online and in person. Over the years IPE has successfully promoted best practice in European pensions and institutional investment. Training is a natural evolution of that process and we believe that it will do much to help asset managers succeed in this highly lucrative yet complex and challenging market.

Founded on excellence
Fully consistent with the IPE and SPO brands, this new training initiative is founded on excellence. IPE is the leading provider of intelligence on European pensions and institutional investment.

SPO is uniquely well positioned to deliver highly focused, relevant training to asset managers seeking to establish themselves or grow their business in the Dutch pensions market: as an education institute, SPO has a long track record of exceeding the expectations of pension funds with a complete, logically structured range of certified courses for the sector, enabling them to fulfil their statutory obligations.

SPO has deep roots in the Dutch pensions sector and has a long history in the market. Consequently, its knowledge and experience of the environment in which pension fund managers and other pension professionals operate is unparalleled. SPO is not driven by commercial interests, but by involvement with its clients and the pension sector. It workson a non-profit basis and returns the proceeds of its work to the sector in the form of development and innovation.
SPO is also completely independent. It has among its board members representatives of APG, ABP, PFZW, PGGM, MN, Achmea, PME, PMT, Shell, Unilever and the Pension Fund for the Construction Industry, among others.
