Peter Ferket and Edith Siermann joint heads of Investment Products, Mark van der Kroft to transfer to Institutional Sales
Peter Ferket takes over from Mark van der Kroft on 1 July 2010 as head of Investment Products in the Investments Division. Peter Ferket is currently fund manager for Rolinco and co-head of the Quantitative Equity team. Mark van der Kroft joins Eric van der Maarel’s Dutch Institutional Sales team on 1 September.
Hans Rademaker, member of the Management Board and head of the Investments Division: “A methodical investment process was developed under Mark van der Kroft’s leadership, and the results obtained for funds and mandates have improved steadily. This has resulted, among other things, in a higher average Morningstar rating. Emerging Markets, Quant and Global have been particularly successful. Peter Ferket has earned his reputation in the field of quantitative and thematic investing. There is no doubt in my mind that Peter Ferket and Edith Siermann together will raise the Investment Products department to an even higher level."
Mark van der Kroft has held a variety of positions in the financial world. In addition to the experience in research and trading he acquired at ABN AMRO, he has developed his expertise in account management and equity investing at Robeco. Hester Borrie, member of the Management board and responsible for Sales and Marketing: “In Mark we have a senior discussion partner for our Dutch clients and prospects. I have every confidence that combining Eric van der Maarel’s international institutional sales experience with Mark van der Kroft’s knowledge of the industry will enable us to reach our target of doubling our market share.”
