Mirae Asset boosts Benelux, Nordic presence
Mirae Asset Global Investments has appointed Sander van Ouwerkerk as head of Benelux and Nordic Sales.
Based in London, Ouwerkerk will be responsible for the $65bn Asian manager’s distribution in these two regions, and will target institutional, wealth management, fund of fund and private bank clients.
The appointment comes off what the manager describes as “strong asset raising traction across 2014 in Mirae Asset’s core Luxembourg Sicav range.”
Ouwerkerk has some 15 years of asset management experience, including spells at Alliance Bernstein in the Benelux region, Dimensional Fund Advisers, and Acadian Asset Management.
Ashley Dale, head of International Business Development at Mirae Asset said: “Sander has an excellent track record of raising assets. We look forward to him leading the sales and marketing effort into this tremendously important region for our business.”
