THE NETHERLANDS - Pension fund investor APG has appointed Angelien Kemna as chief investment officer of APG and chief executive of APG Asset Management.
Kemna will replace Roderick Munsters, who is moving to Dutch Rabobank's asset management firm Robeco as of September 1. Kemna will start work at APG on November 1.
APG chief executive Dick Sluimers said: "We are very pleased to have succeeded in getting someone of Angelien Kemna's caliber on board. She has an excellent track record in the financial world, where she worked for several leading institutional investors and as an academic.
"Besides, her personal ambitions to serve society are a perfect match with APG's. She shares our views on the place of sustainability and governance in the investment policy of institutional investors, as well as on the collective pension system's great benefit to society. As APG's CIO, she aims to be a strong defender of both."
Previously, Kemna held several positions in research, academy and management, including the position of director of investments and account management of Robeco and chief executive of ING Investment Management Europe.
