Kames hires two co-managers

Jacob-VijverbergEdinburgh-based Kames Capital has hired two co-managers to its multi-asset funds in roles that have been newly-created.

Jacob Vijverberg (pictured) has been appointed co-manager on the UK-domiciled Kames Diversified Monthly Income Fund and on the Dublin-registered Kames Global Diversified Income Fund alongside current manager Vincent McEntegart.

Meanwhile, Robert-Jan van der Mark becomes co-manager on the UK-domiciled Kames Diversified Growth Fund and the Dublin-domiciled Kames Global Diversified Growth Fund working alongside current manager Colin Dryburgh.

Both van der Mark and Vijverberg are part of the multi-asset team of Kames’ Dutch sister company Aegon Asset Management Netherlands. Their appointments to the UK funds formalise the roles they have previously played in assisting their UK counterparts in running the funds.

Kames chief investment officer, Stephen Jones, said: “The appointment of Jacob and Robert-Jan to the Kames multi-asset funds formalises the arrangement we have had for some time, where both the UK and the Netherlands multi-asset teams have been working closely together sharing ideas and themes.”
