Financial Independence & Retiring Early

Manage your own retirement plan

THE CHALLENGE

Financial Independence & Retiring Early. FIRE is a movement of individuals who live small and save large to achieve a not so long-term goal of early retirement. While seemingly radically in our consumerist culture, many young people are retiring in their 40s to live comfortably and pursue their non-profitable ambitions.

How can APG,  the largest pension service provider in the Netherlands and one of the largest in the world, help participants create and manage their personal financial roadmap for this goal? Can we provide knowledge and tools that make becoming financially independent effortless and user friendly?
