Seven firms manage US$10.3B Pension Fund
Santo Domingo.- The Pension Fund reached RD$494.2 billion (US$10.3 billion) as of Sept. 30, and reached a 15% share of GDP), the Pensions Superintendence (Sipen) said Tues. in its newsletter .
RD$488.4 billion of that correspond to Individual Capitalization Accounts (CCI), or 98.8% of the workers in the pension system; and 1% to the Profitability Guarantee Account, of RD$4.8 billion.
The Fund has steadily increased its participation in the economy, mainly through the Central Bank and the Finance Ministry, institutions which collectively concentrate 74% of the investments.
As the Fund grows, the number of affiliates to the pension system also increases, which for that period exceeded 3.6 million, a jump of 6% compared with Sept. 2016.
“As of September 30, 2017, the total number of affiliates of the Dominican Pensions System reaches 100% of the potential affiliate market,” says the Sipen report.
The Sipen report also lists the seven Pension Fund Administrators (AFPs): AFP Popular, Scotia Crecer, Siembra, Reservas, Romana, Atlántico, and JMMB.
