Capital Group appoints Goudsmit to support Benelux sales
Capital Group has now announced the appointment of Feike Goudsmit (pictured) as institutional relationship manager to support sales efforts in the Benelux.
Goudsmit joins Capital Group from Threadneedle, where he was country head Benelux since 2006. Overall he has twenty-five years of experience in the institutional business.
“Capital Group has a long heritage and is incredibly well regarded as one of the largest active managers in the institutional space. Capital’s focus on delivering superior, consistent results to long-term investors appeals to me, as does the company’s independence and financial stability” Goudsmit comments.
His appointment comes as Capital Group has launched a broader expansion strategy across Europe, which inludes the opening of an Amsterdam-based Benelux office in the first half of 2015. Capital Group has also recently opened a Zurich office and plans to set up a Madrid office.
Goudsmit will initially be based in London and will lead the Benelux institutional team once the Amsterdam office has been opened.
