Dutch asset manager Kempen Capital Management (Kempen) has opened an office in Paris with the aim of bolstering its presence in the region.

Kempen tallies a number of French institutional clients, having been granted mandates from the Fonds de reserve pour les retraites (FRR) for instance.

Vuk Srdanovic, who has been Kempen’s international business development manager for the French market since 2011, will be responsible for helping the asset manager to further distribute its offering and expand its activities in France.

Srdanovic said: “In the past years French institutional investors have shown a strong interest in our niche investment strategies, such as European small caps including sustainable strategies, high dividend equity, real estate and credits. The opening of the Paris office aims to develop our relationship with existing clients, to attract a broader spectrum of investors as well as to confirm our commitment to the French market.”

Kempen’s chief investment officer Lars Dijkstra added: “France has been a key market for Kempen for many years. With offices in Amsterdam, London, Edinburgh, and now Paris, we are well-positioned to fulfill the growing needs of our customers in these jurisdictions.”
