The final appointment is Ronald Koelewijn, who also takes on a newly created role of head of sales for the Netherlands. Koelewijn will be responsible for business development across all client segments in the country. He was previously global client development manager for banks and brokers for the Netherlands and the Nordics at BNPP SS.

Gerald Noltsch, head of Germany, Northern Europe, Central and Eastern Europe and commonwealth of independent states at BNPP SS, says: “We are seeing strong demand to help investors in light of regulatory changes, AIFMD [the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive] being one of them.”
