Kames Capital has expanded its multi-asset team with the appointment of two co-managers, who join from Kames’ Dutch sister company Aegon Asset Management.

Jacob Vijverberg (pictured) joins as 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.

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.

Kames CIO Stephen Jones comments: ‘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.

‘The formalisation of their roles as co-managers marks a new point for greater co-operation and collaboration between the two teams and will allow us to optimise and strengthen our capabilities in this very competitive sector of the market.

Between the two units, Kames and Aegon Asset Management Netherlands now share a 17-person strong team of multi-asset experts, eight in the UK and nine in the Netherlands.
