Kempen appoints Director Impact & Responsible Investment

Narina, who begins her role on 1 June 2017, is one of the recognised voices in the responsible investment space, having worked for more than a decade in the sector.

She has worked for a number of prominent institutions, including the UNPRI (United Nations supported Principles for Responsible Investment), where she was at the forefront of developing global responsible investment best practices. Narina helped to build PRI local investor networks around the world and assisted signatories in embedding the Principles into their investment process.

Narina’s most recent role was with Sarona Asset Management, a boutique private equity firm focused on investing in emerging markets for returns and positive impact. At Sarona she was responsible for investor relations, impact management and ESG. She has also held positions at MN, KPMG and EY. 

Erik Luttenberg, managing director and chairman of the ESG council at Kempen, said: “We are delighted to welcome Narina to the team. She brings ample experience in active ownership and ESG integration across asset classes.  Her appointment further cements Kempen’s longstanding commitment to responsible investment. Narina’s extensive experience within this space, particularly among institutional investors, will be key in leading this initiative forward.”

Commenting on her appointment, Narina added: “I am excited to be joining the team at Kempen and look forward to working for an organisation with a strong commitment to responsible investment and long term investment. I am confident that together we will build on this solid foundation to ensure that Kempen continues to develop internal ESG best practices and becomes an internationally recognised leader in impact investing and responsible investment.”

Lars Dijkstra, chief investment officer at Kempen, said: “Narina’s excellent experience in impact investing will further boost Kempen’s ethos and market standing as a long-term responsible investor. This new appointment is part of our continued commitment to active ownership and shareholder engagement for the benefit of all stakeholders.”
