Van Lanschot Kempen today hosts its Investor Day to present its updated wealth management strategy “Growing further together” and its 2027 financial targets. Building on the disciplined strategy execution and capital management of the past years, it will focus on scalable growth through client excellence. 


Maarten Edixhoven, Chair of the Management Board, said: “Van Lanschot Kempen has delivered on its strategic and financial objectives as defined in 2022. We’ve grown our business, both organically and inorganically, while maintaining a capital-light proposition. With Mercier Van Lanschot, we’ve established Belgium as our second home market in private banking, alongside the Netherlands. At the same time, we’ve taken measures to ensure we can grow in a scalable and profitable way across our client segments. All for the purpose of preserving and creating wealth for our clients and society in a sustainable way.


“Today we are a leading wealth manager with a profile that is unique in our markets. Through our “Growing further together” strategy we aim to reinforce our position in Western Europe in our chosen markets in private banking, investment management and investment banking. Our offering enables us to stand by our clients as their trusted advisor in transformational moments in their lives and businesses, from building a business to transferring wealth to the next generation or giving back to society. 


“We continue our growth trajectory and target a 10% average annual increase in AuM, through a mix of organic growth, a disciplined bolt-on acquisition strategy and market performance. All our client segments are envisaged to contribute to this. Additionally, by combining our private banking expertise with our in-house investment engine and investment banking capabilities, we’re able to create numerous opportunities for cross-selling and co-creation, benefitting our clients. 


“We look forward to growing further, together with our clients, colleagues and other stakeholders. The absolute key to our success is and will remain our personal approach to our clients, coupled with our entrepreneurship. I want to thank all our colleagues for delivering that to our clients every day.”
