APS to host pension seminar

Attendees to be updated on pension reforms, APS investments and APS communication strategy

PHILIPSBURG:—- St. Maarten’s general pension fund administrator, APS, has begun preparations for a seminar, to be held on May 19 upcoming.
The seminar will be held with the theme ‘Your Future is Our Day to Day’.
The seminar is to feature presentations by APS officials, elucidating on several issues which are considered of importance to APS participants, pensioners, and other stakeholders.
The seminar will additionally serve to discuss, in depth, how the pension fund aims to protect the interests of its clients through its daily operations and ongoing initiatives.
The pension fund maintains that investment opportunities are embraced with the intention of increasing the long-term return of the fund and ensuring that pension payments to civil servants and other employees of the (semi-)public sector can continue well into the future.
Those attending the seminar, can expect to learn more about the new investment projects which the pension fund is now involved in. These include the Rainforest Adventures St. Maarten project, the acquisition of a parcel of land next to the new government administration building and of an office park in the Philipsburg area. These are in addition to the ongoing APS development of Mary’s Fancy estate and the Welgelegen homes initiative.
Next month’s seminar will thus be in keeping with the fund’s commitment to provide information and to obtain feedback from participants, pensioners and other stakeholders, on a regular basis.
APS envisions raising awareness while disseminating pertinent information regarding pensions in general and aspects of the pension reform process.
