BELGIUM - Philip Neyt, a general manager at the EUR3.5bn Belgacom pension fund, will take over from colleague William Van Impe when he leaves the fund to join Fortis AG next month.
This follows the Belgacom fund’s decision to combine its two managerial roles, held by Neyt and Van Impe, under one roof.
Over and above his responsibility for asset liability modelling and pension liabilities, Neyt will cover Van Impe’s managerial roles, which encompass the day-to-day liaison with fund managers and tactical decisions affecting the fund.
Van Impe will finish a five year career at the pension fund to join Fortis AG as head of asset management. Reporting to managing director Carl Dierckx, Van Impe will be in charge of all asset management functions of Fortis AG’s Brussels office.
Sources within Belgacom said Van Impe’s departure follows the pension fund’s decision to merge the fund’s operations into one coherent structure.
