NETHERLANDS - Investment consultant Compendeon BV has announced a major restructure of its management team, following the resignation of chief executive Lou ten Cate.
Chief investment officer Erik van Dijk is to take on the role of CEO at Compendeon, in addition to his CIO position.
Gia Betiu has joined as director of operations & IT and further new hires in business development and investment management, both at senior level, are expected shortly.
Van Dijk said Compendeon was at an exciting juncture in its business and he was looking forward to taking it to its next level.
He said: "I wish Lou well in his new role at Insight. Insight is a top ranking fund manager and we have a number of their products in our manager selection list."
Compendeon will expand upon its GTAA and fiduciary asset management services, broadening its activities into the field of emerging markets equities.
Van Dijk commented: ''Within the GTAA structure 'emerging markets' was one of the most outstanding areas of expertise in terms of performance. We simply have to use that skill for our clients.''
