NETHERLANDS - ABP has announced its chairman, Elco Brinkman, is to step down after eight years in the role.
Harry Borghouts, currently a member of the executive board, will assume Brinkman's role on an interim basis until a successor can be found.
Van Dijk added: "Because the board has not found a new chairman for ABP yet and because of continuity [issues] in these difficult times, the members of the board asked their fellow board member to be chairman ad interim."
Brinkman will step down ahead of 1 April, when Borghouts will take his place. ABP added the change of leadership on the board would have "no effects" on the fund's investment strategy.
Van Dijk said: "That's a matter the whole board decides upon."
The twelve member board is split between six employer and six worker representatives.
