To news & knowledge overview

Thomas van der Meij will leave Van Lanschot Kempen

16 November 2022

Jags Walia, who co-founded the strategy with Thomas and brings in 27 years of investment experience, will be lead portfolio manager going forward. Thomas van der Meij: “Jags and I have managed the fund since inception, through the initial phase to the robust and successful product it is today. I am confident the fund will be in strong hands under Jags’ stewardship for the next phase of growth.” 

Given the fund’s structured and disciplined investment process, as well as the team set up where each portfolio manager/analyst has a back-up person, the transition of coverage will be immediate and smooth. The sound and proven investment process of alpha by control, data driven, with sustainability factored in will remain unchanged. 

Erik van Houwelingen, Member of the Management Board, responsible for Investment Strategies & Solutions: “We thank Thomas for his valuable contribution and wish him well in his new endeavours. Global Listed Infrastructure Fund is an integral part of our wider Real Assets franchise which is one of Van Lanschot Kempen’s core investment expertise. We look forward to continue growing this strategy.”
