Igor Puljic and Marjoleine van der Peet are to join the hedge funds team at Kempen Capital Management (KCM) in Amsterdam.
Puljic (36) will join KCM’s hedge funds team in May as senior portfolio manager. He has 13 years of manager selection experience. Most recently, he spent eight years at London-based Key Asset Management where he was deputy chief investment officer and portfolio manager for the firm’s flagship multi-strategy fund of hedge funds.
“I am very excited to be joining such a high quality organisation which has a strong reputation in the hedge fund industry,” he says.
Van der Peet (38) will also start as senior portfolio manager for KCM’s hedge funds team in July. She has 10 years of manager selection experience, the first three years as investment consultant at Watson Wyatt and the last seven years as senior investment analyst and portfolio manager at GAM Plc in London.
“I look forward to my new role at Kempen Capital Management and to work in an experienced team of professionals who share the same investment philosophy,” she says.
Theo Nijssen, head of hedge funds at KCM, says: “We believe that with their relevant backgrounds and international experience Igor and Marjoleine will be a great addition to our hedge funds team.”
