Cornerstones of German share pension set

( – The Deutsche Bundesbank has been selected by the Federal Treasury to manage the investment fund that will be used to pay for state pensions from shares in the future. The fund should operate in a yield-oriented manner. “In a first step, the fund should be fed exclusively from federal funds and the expected profits on the capital markets,” said Finance Secretary Florian Toncar, according to a media report.

The traffic light coalition had agreed on a share pension in their coalition agreement.
