About DPS

DSM Pension Services

DSM Pension Services B.V. (DPS) is the full-service provider for the pension fund DSM Nederland (PDN) and the pension fund SABIC (SPF). SABIC's pension fund was established in 2003, after DSM had sold the petrochemical activities to SABIC a year earlier. 

DPS is licensed by the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) and holds a European passport (FSA) in connection with the execution of activities concerning asset advice and asset management. 

DPS offers a range of services in the form of: 

PDN and SPF pension funds

  • Pension service

DPS manages the implementation of the collective pension and pre-pension schemes on behalf of the pension funds and communicates on these matters.

  • Asset management

DPS advises the pension funds on investment strategies and all related topics. Tactical and operational management is carried out by the asset management department. External asset managers are used selectively for special mandates. As DPS acts in line with the investment policy and policy documentation, including the pension funds’ SRI policy, and can also agree with this policy and does not manage any assets other than those of the pension funds, DPS itself has not established a separate SRI policy or comparable policy documentation. 

  • Administrative support

DPS provides administrative support for the pension funds and is a member of the board and Committees of the Federation of the Dutch Pension Funds (“Pensioenfederatie”) on behalf of the funds.

  • Communication

DPS is responsible for communications for both pension funds and is a member of the Pensioenfederatie's Pension Communication Platform (“Platform Pensioencommunicatie”).

  • Risk management and compliance

DPS advises the funds’ Boards on setting up, implementing, and carrying out risk management and compliance.

  • Financial administration and reporting

DPS takes care of the funds’ financial administration and takes care of all periodic reports.  

International pension funds 
DPS acts as a “global” center of expertise for DSM in terms of pension management and asset management and the governance relating to these. DSM Pension Services B.V. is a 100% owned subsidiary of Koninklijke DSM N.V. and has 70 employees.
