Van Lanschot Kempen announces departure of some of its small-cap team members

Four of its 10-strong small-cap team have decided to leave Van Lanschot Kempen Investment Management, effective 1 May, and to pursue their careers elsewhere. The continuity of the team’s investment process is safeguarded by Head of Small Cap Strategy Jan Willem Berghuis and his team of five small-cap managers, complemented by experienced sector specialists from Van Lanschot Kempen Investment Management’s other investment teams.

Jan Willem Berghuis commented: “We are sad to say goodbye to team members who have made a key contribution to the growth of our small-cap strategies. As our organisation offers talented people plenty of room to develop themselves, we typically create powerful teams with world-class capabilities. At this point, the team is fully focused on implementing our existing investment process and continuing to achieve the performance our clients expect from us.”

Specialist wealth manager Van Lanschot Kempen Investment Management has been active in small-cap investment for over 30 years. The unique investment philosophy underpinning its highly rated small-cap strategy will remain unchanged, ensuring its disciplined investment process, structured fundamental bottom-up approach and sustainability policy. Extensive engagement with management teams at investee companies, well-informed investment decisions and robust valuation models combine to create clarity and insight for all team members. This is the foundation of the team’s investment process and historical results.

Erik van Houwelingen, the member of Van Lanschot Kempen’s Management Board responsible for Investment Strategies & Solutions, observed: “We are confident that we’ll continue to create the alpha that our clients have come to expect from our 30-year track record, now and in the future. As Van Lanschot Kempen’s management, we are fully committed to our small-cap strategy and are proud of our expertise in small-cap investing. We’re currently working on getting the team back to full strength.”
