VanEck Europe appoints MD & head of PM

VanEck continues to grow its European business with the appointment of Gijs Koning as head of Portfolio Management & Operations at VanEck Europe.

Koning co-founded the Dutch ETF provider Think ETFs together with Martijn Rozemuller, the new head of VanEck Europe, which VanEck acquired in the first half of 2018. Together they now form the newly created European Board of Operations.

As managing director, Koning is responsible for portfolio management, product development, tax and accounting at VanEck Europe. Prior to his role at Think ETFs, he was a partner at Optiver, a global trading company, where he traded stock options both on the trading floor and electronically.

The acquisition of Think ETFs has increased the company’s assets under management in Ucits funds to $1.8bn. As a global asset manager, VanEck manages assets over $48bn and is among the ten largest ETF providers in the U.S.
