Danish Pension Fund Managing $150 Billion Takes on More Risk

ATP, Denmark’s biggest pension fund, said it will invest in riskier assets after getting government approval to move forward with the strategy to give savers a better return.

The state-mandated fund, into which all workers must pay, said a fourth of contributions once reserved for safer assets like bonds will be invested in higher-risk assets from this month. The level of risk will gradually be lowered as savers near retirement age, the fund said in a statement on Monday.
