Tom Steenkamp to join Robeco
Professor Tom Steenkamp joins Robeco on 1 November 2010 to co-head the Investment Solutions department together with Artino Janssen. This is the department where all Robeco disciplines come together to provide investment solutions for pension funds in line with our policy to raise our domestic institutional market share from the present eight percent to sixteen percent in 2014.
As a member of the board of directors of asset manager APG Vermogensbeheer, Tom Steenkamp’s particular areas of responsibility were fixed income, tactical asset allocation and alternative inflation products. In addition, he is an associate professor in investment theory at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, where, once a week, he presides over the VBA (Association of Financial Professionals) program, the course leading to a degree in Investment and Finance.
Artino Janssen has been with Robeco since 2004 and, over the last years, set up the Global Allocations department. He is responsible for all institutional multi-asset portfolios and is at the same time fund manager for the Robeco mix funds.
Robeco Investment Solutions is responsible mainly for identifying integrated asset-management solutions for pension funds, and it specializes in strategic advice, balance-sheet management, multi-management and defined-contribution schemes. The department forms part of the Robeco Investments division led by board member Hans Rademaker.
Hans Rademaker: “At APG, Tom Steenkamp helped initiate advanced investment concepts as chairman of the innovation committee. Such ideas can be extremely useful to other pension funds, too. I expect the cooperation between Artino and Tom to provide considerable added value for the benefit of existing and new clients.”
