Investment management firm Capital Group has opened an office in Amsterdam and appointed Martin Hofman as Country Marketing Manager for the Benelux and Nordics regions.
Capital Group continues to focus on delivering high-quality long-term investment services to investors and institutions throughout Europe. The launch of the Amsterdam office and appointment of Hofman, alongside other recent investment and business development hires, highlight this commitment.
Rob Lovelace (pictured), Senior Member of Capital Group’s Management Committee and a Portfolio Manager, says: “Capital Group recognises the importance of enhancing its relationships on a global, regional and local basis, in order to build upon its long-standing heritage. Our Dutch office is the latest in a series of new European offices we have opened over the past two years and is an essential part of our ambition to deliver long-term, reliable asset management services for Dutch, and European, investors, as well as expanding our global footprint.”
Hofman will be based in the Amsterdam office and joins Feike Goudsmit and Marnix van den Berge, who respectively lead Capital Group’s business development activities in the Benelux institutional and financial intermediaries markets. He will play a key role in expanding Capital Group’s services in the Benelux and Nordics regions.
Hofman joins Capital Group from Columbia Threadneedle Investments, where he began as Regional Marketing Manager for the Benelux and Nordics regions in 2008. Since 2014, he has been responsible for leading the institutional marketing activities in the EMEA region, including strategy planning, and development and execution of regional and global campaigns.
Capital Group has also continued to expand on its European operations by making several new appointments in the past year. These include the appointments of Christophe Braun in January 2016 and Julie Dickson in December 2015 as investment specialists in the London office.
Capital Group currently has sales branches in nine locations across Europe: Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Geneva, London, Luxemburg, Madrid, Milan, Munich, and Zurich.
