Kempen expands Business Development team
John will be key to further strengthening Kempen’s institutional relations, client relationship management and business development. John will be working with the UK team to target fiduciary management mandates for pension schemes, where Kempen has specialist experience delivering bespoke solutions.
Having previously spent 9 years at Hymans Robertson, John has extensive experience in fiduciary oversight, providing clients with independent fiduciary manager selection as well as monitoring and reviewing services.
Johan Cras, Managing Director at Kempen comments: “John’s insight and understanding of the needs of UK pension schemes will be invaluable as part of our team at Kempen, where we continue to grow our business in this fast-growing market.
“The fiduciary management market will see significant change in the years to come and John’s appointment will help to ensure that Kempen remains at the forefront of bringing client-focused solutions to pension schemes as they navigate these challenging times.”
John MacDonald comments: “The exponential growth we have seen in fiduciary management in recent years, combined with the ongoing review of the industry by the Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) and a drive towards greater cost transparency, are all leading to increased opportunities for a specialist player such as Kempen. I’m looking forward to being part of a thriving company that is shaping trends in institutional investment for the benefit of our clients.”
