Joris Franssen has been appointed Head of Kempen Dividend strategy
Joris Franssen and Jorik van den Bos initially launched the Dividend strategy in 2000, and subsequently joined Kempen in 2006. Together, they built the Dividend franchise as it stands today. After 20+ years, Jorik has decided to pursue other career paths outside Kempen. Joris Franssen will take over his role as Head of the Dividend strategy and will remain Senior Portfolio Manager.
Joris Franssen, Head of the Dividend team: ‘With regret we look upon Jorik’s departure, however with a proven investment process and highly experienced team in place our Dividend strategy is more than ever well positioned for the future. Supported by Kempen’s clear commitment to the strategy, we look forward to continuing to deliver attractive returns and equity income for our clients. We are grateful for Jorik’s tremendous role in building the Dividend strategy and for his overall contribution to Kempen.’
Jorik van den Bos: ‘The past years have proven to me that the Dividend team and its investment framework are resilient. We have invested time and resources in improving our processes and our team. Following a period of reflection, I realise that now is a natural moment for a new challenge and to pursue my other ambitions. I am fully confident that the Dividend team is well positioned to continue and build on its success.’
