Belgian national association elects new president

Marnix-ArickxThe Belgian Asset Managers Association Beama has elected Marnix Arickx as its new president.

Arickx, the chief executive of BNP Paribas Asset Management Belgium, takes up the presidency with immediate effect for a period of three years.

Arickx has been a board member of Beama since 2014 and is also a board member of several Luxemburg and Belgium-domiciled investment funds.

He succeeds Hugo Lasat of Degroof Petercam Asset Management who has served as Beama’s president since 2014.

At Beama’s annual general meeting this week two new vice-presidents were also elected: Katrin Eyckmans, of Capfi Delen Asset Management, and Myriam Vanneste of Candriam.

Arickx said: “We will continue to work with the legislator, regulator and market shareholders to further develop Brussels as a financial centre while never forgetting our primary reason for existence which is helping our clients with their saving and helping financing the economy.”
