Two experienced financial specialists – Jan De Bondt and Wim Vermeir - will give their view on the Belgian pension market from their perspective.
Jan De Bondt will zoom in on the Belgian pension market from a broader European perspective, and will highlight some initiatives taken in the surrounding countries to build pension savings. In his view, Belgium is a poor country, with rich citizens.
