story_images_calgary_albertaAlberta Investment Management Corporation (AIMCo) has appointed Remco van Eeuwijk as chief risk officer, effective May 2, 2016.

With more than 15 years of experience, Van Eeuwijk is a seasoned investment risk management executive with deep knowledge of institutional asset management and global pension markets. Since 2008, he was UK managing director of MN, the third-largest pensions and investment manager in the Netherlands.

Van Eeuwijk continued in this role subsequent to the acquisition of the UK fiduciary management activities of MN by Kempen Capital Management in October 2015. During this period, Remco built out the UK office of MN, and was accountable for the oversight of serving the fiduciary management activities of pension fund clients with assets totaling more than EUR 10 billion.

Prior to joining MN, he was global head of investment risk and performance with ABN AMRO Asset Management in London, where he oversaw a team of 25 risk managers in six global locations. He began his career in risk management at ING Investment Management.

“[Van Eeuwijk] is a globally recognized practitioner of investment risk management, who is as adept technically as he is working with clients to understand their issues and leading teams that will develop their solutions,” said CEO Kevin Uebelein.

“AIMCo undertook a global search to identify the right person for the role and we are pleased that he has decided to join our team.”

“I am excited to be joining an organization that shares my passion for risk management in the context of investment management toward ensuring the long-term sustainability of the pension fund and government clients it serves,” said van Eeuwijk.
