Kempen Capital Management named Fiduciary Manager of the Year
In particular, Kempen’s proactive investment approach was highlighted by the judging panel as a result of a number of decisions it had taken to the benefit of its clients over 2018 and 2019. This included changing exposures to certain asset classes, as well as raising hedging across portfolios, which helped clients to mitigate risk and still meet their objectives.
Furthermore, Kempen’s success in winning a series of fiduciary mandates over the last year demonstrated that its proactive investment approach had resonated strongly with clients.
As a longstanding responsible investor, Kempen further embedded ESG factors into all its investment processes during the year, launched a new policy framework to govern sector exclusions, and implemented an ESG scoring and monitoring framework for investment funds. Furthermore, Johan Cras, Head of Institutional Relations at Kempen was appointed to the role of Ambassador for the Transparency Task Force.
Andre Keijsers, Managing Director, Kempen Capital Management UK, said: “We are very pleased to have won Fiduciary Manager of the Year.
