Better alignment of pension, mortgage and home-ownership gives consumers more financial flexibility03rd October 2019
Homeowners can see their pension income grow by as much as 25% if they can use the capital that is now set in stone earlier. However, the possibilities for making such financial choices are still limited and, moreover, unknown. The opportunities and risks of different loan and sale structures are complex and difficult for consumers to oversee. These are the findings of Tilburg University researchers Dirk Brounen and Eduard Ponds, together with Niels Kortleve (PGGM pension fund) in a Netspar studie.
