NETHERLANDS - Jaap van Duijn is to retire from as an executive board member of Robeco Groep, as manager of the fund Robeco and as chief investment officer, Europe, after 20 years.
He will continue to have links with Robeco as chief strategist whereby he will analyse economic and financial markets, represent Robeco in the media and oversee the Robeco Economic Recovery fund.
Commenting on his move, van Duijn said: I will always be interested in the stock market and the economy, and I am very pleased to continue managing Robeco Economic Recovery, especially now that the global economy is picking up again. At the same time I am looking forward to having more time for my other interests.
Managing director of Robeco Asset Management, Marnix Vriezen, has been promoted to chief investment officer Europe, chairman of the investment policy committee and head of the investments & account management (IAM) department.
Current head of IAM, Bas Vliegenthart, will continue to manage the fixed-income fund Rorento as well as support commercial activities in the institutional and the retail market.
Mark Glazener will succeed Jaap van Duijn as manager of the Robeco fund. Glazener is already van Duijn's deputy in the management of Robeco. He will transfer the management of the Rolinco fund, for which a new manager will be appointed in due course.
