Kempen sharpens its focus on alternative investments with the appointment of Anne Mei Poppe

22 January 2020
Anne Mei, who started at the beginning of January, brings twelve years of experience in financial services. She will focus on the growing demand from international institutional investors, wealth managers and family offices for alternative investment strategies. 

Anne Mei joined from Dutch asset management and direct lending firm Dynamic Credit, where she shared responsibility for alternative fixed income sales and client management for the past three years. Prior to this, she worked as a senior financial services advisor at EY after starting her career at Heineken and BinckBank.

Her appointment demonstrates Kempen’s commitment to boosting growth in alternative investments.

Rutger-Jan Leewens, head Wholesale Distribution at Kempen, discusses the new appointment: “Alternative investments are a key part of Kempen’s active approach, which aims to generate alpha for our clients. Driven by the search for extra yield, our clients are showing a keen interest in alternative investment strategies. Examples include our Private Markets and alternative Credit strategies. The enormous interest in the Kempen European Private Equity Fund and its faster-than-expected final close are other telling examples. We are very pleased that Anne Mei Poppe has joined us at this exciting time. She will strengthen the team and help us to boost the international growth of alternative investments.”
