Kempen centralises small-cap strategies in Amsterdam
This means that the implementation of the management of the European small-cap funds and mandates will be transferred from the United Kingdom (Edinburgh) to the Netherlands (Amsterdam). As a consequence, the office in Edinburgh will close, as the other small-cap strategies and funds are already managed from Amsterdam.By bringing together the small-cap teams (Dutch, European and global), Kempen will be able to share existing knowledge and investment processes more effectively. Lars Dijkstra, Chief Investment Officer (CIO), at Kempen: ‘Augmenting our proven capabilities at one central location at Kempen will enhance team collaboration, investment decisions and performance for our clients’.
The centralisation will be implemented in December 2018.
