“For example,” he said, “we want to find out whether someone’s attitude towards pensions is linked to age and the used information channels, and how someone assesses a pensions institution.”During the pilot, Indialoog wants to learn about an employer’s role in pensions and to establish how the subject of pensions can be made more attractive. APG will also try to find out where the public is seeking information about pensions, and which information people expect to find.Participants in the consumer community dialogue can also add themes.Willms said the pilot would be considered successful if it provided new insights, and if people continued discussing new subjects.In that event, he said, Indialoog will be rolled out nationwide.Willms added that APG would share the outcome of a permanent panel with the pensions sector. The €344bn asset manager and pensions provider APG has launched a pilot project to start a dialogue with Dutch consumers on pensions, insurance and other financial issues.During the next half year, APG’s marketing, communications and distribution department is to enter into dialogue with 450 members of the public. But the pilot, called Indialoog’, must make clear whether such an exchange of thoughts will be a good way of involving people in the development of new products and services, said Raoul Willms, strategic marketing manager at APG.He said Indialoog aimed for a broader discussion than merely the “relatively limited enviroment of pension funds”.

Aguero has worn the number 16 since arriving at City and enjoyed several stellar moments in it, most memorably scoring the goal which won the 2012 title. However, Aguero will now wear the number 10 shirt formerly belonging to Roma-bound Edin Dzeko. Press Association Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has traded his number 16 squad number on the eve of the new season, but is making sure his fans are not left out of pocket because of the late decision. Aguero is arguably City’s most popular player and as such, it is likely that many fans will have had his name and number printed on their replica shirts which, according to City’s website, start at £34 for infants, £43 for children and £55 for adults. But not wanting to see his fans short changed, Aguero has offered to either sign their out-of-date shirt or pay for a replacement bearing his new number. “The No. 10 shirt means a lot to me,” he told City’s official website. “When I arrived at City, Edin had it – he wore it very well, and of course, I respected it. “That’s why I picked the number 16. I must admit, I have warmed to it over the past few years and shared many special moments in it but the number 10 shirt is very special for me. “I always felt a connection to it, and even more so now.”
