Firm aims to expand delivery of multi-asset investing solutions to region’s professional investors
LONDON, 11 April 2018 – Global asset manager Russell Investments has appointed Maarten Roeleveld as Director, Business Development Benelux. With responsibility for the further development of the firm’s institutional investment activities in the Benelux region, he will focus on delivering multi-asset investment solutions, as well as transition management and currency overlays services. Joining the firm on 3 April, he is positioned in the Amsterdam office, which is responsible for the northern European region, and reports to Martijn Kuipers, Managing Director, Northern Europe.
"Maarten brings to Russell Investments a wealth of knowledge about the Benelux market and has a deep understanding of the challenges professional investors face,” Kuipers said. “His knowledge and experience are a valuable addition to the existing team, and we believe his arrival will increase our strength in the market to deliver desired outcomes to existing and new customers."
Roeleveld, who has 16 years of experience in financial services, launched the distribution of investment funds to the retail public via Fundix.nl, then retail and DC administration at Ordina BPO. For the past decade, he worked at Northern Trust as a sales manager for asset servicing, fund administration and outsourcing to professional investors.
"I'm looking forward to getting started,” Roeleveld said. “Russell Investments is a leading asset manager with a diverse product mix that fits well with the current needs of the investor market, particularly the firm’s multi-asset approach and independent fiduciary services. In addition, Russell Investments is widely regarded as the market leader in the field of transition management, a service offered by ever fewer parties and where there is a continuous need. In short, this is the ideal environment to get started as a business development director.”
Roeleveld added that with a fully transparent business model for fiduciary management, Russell Investments aligns with clients to deliver better outcomes at a total portfolio level, using its core capabilities extending across asset allocation, capital markets insights, factor exposures, manager research and portfolio implementation.
