This requires changes in the pension system and an adaption of future visions for an optimal financial and social return on investment: like more employers’, participants’ and pensioners’ involvement. Our goal is not only to meet regulatory requirements, but we also aim to make a visible contribution to our participants and the community. We will undergo a transition period during which we must transform into a sustainable pension fund and organization. We need everyone to do this: the participants, the (social) partners, the government and the regulators.
Strategic Agenda 2019 – 2022
In the Strategic Agenda we outline our ambitions and objectives. The 5 fundamental principles of these objectives are:
- We direct the pension fund ethically and competently.
- We invest sustainably in Sint Maarten and abroad.
- We communicate clearly and report proactively.
- We provide personalized service online and offline.
- We prepare for the future.
Our ambitions are summarized in a vision statement in order to create an unshakable foundation for all our stakeholders and participants:
“APS aims to grow sustainably with a dedicated focus on people, society and the environment. We are in continuous innovation and evolution with the purpose of meeting the needs and demands of all participants and pensioners in an ever-changing world. We deliver quality and customized service; we report proactively; we maintain a transparent and inclusive relationship with employers, participants, pensioners as well as partners.”
Our mission is therefore: “We are a trustworthy and leading pension fund. We commit ourselves to a future-oriented pension scheme that is upheld by all participants. We add value by investing in the sustainable development of Sint Maarten.
At APS we perform our duties with diligence and respect towards people, society and environment. We invest in and on behalf of the pensioners and participants, but we must go a step further.
