Dutch asset management association names new chairman

Roelie van Wijk (pictured) has been elected as chairman of the Dutch fund and asset management association (Dufas) for a mandate of two years last 26 June, the association announced.

van Vijk, global head of Responsible Business and Public Affairs at Aegon Asset Management, succeeds Toine van der Stee.

Dick van Ommeren, managing director at Triodos Investment Management, has been appointed second vice-chairman alongside Jan Lodewijk Roebroek, CEO BNP Paribas Asset Management Netherlands who holds this position since 2016.

Hans Janssen Daalen, CEO of Dufas, said: “A fast-changing world also requires the asset management sector to operate actively and flexibly. We see that the government ensures that we are becoming more and more visible to a wider audience, which partly also consists of new generations. Investing – also in funds – increasingly goes hand in hand with sustainable issues. We need to show more of ourselves, preferably within a leading collective. This offers us opportunities, especially if this increasing visibility is accompanied by a good reputation. But it does require an active, self-assured input from our sector and therefore from Dufas.”
