15 May 2017 – Roelie will support the ILG with strategic guidance to help the group deliver an ambitious three-year programme focusing on investment impact and long-termism.

Roelie van Wijk RusschenRoelie van Wijk-Russchen has been appointed Chair of the Investment Leaders Group (ILG), a group of 10 leading pension funds, insurers and asset managers convened by the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership.

The ILG’s vision is an investment chain in which economic, social and environmental sustainability are delivered as an outcome of the investment process as investors go about generating robust, long-term returns. The ILG has recently entered its second phase, and Roelie will support the ILG through this next phase with strategic guidance to help the group deliver an ambitious three-year programme focusing on investment impact and long-termism.

Roelie brings to the role a deep knowledge of the investment industry, having worked in the sector for more than 25 years, and a strong belief in the importance of long-term sustainable investment.

Roelie van Wijk-Russchen, CEO TKP Investments, said:

“It is my firm belief that long-term sustainable investing should be a mainstream activity, underpinned by common sense, and should be put forward by mainstream investors. Sustainable research or responsible investing should not be done by a separate department or different people but should be an integral part of an investor’s day-to-day business. All mainstream investors should ensure that this is part of their intrinsic investment beliefs and act accordingly when making their day-to-day investment decisions.” 

Since June 2006, Roelie has been CEO of TKP Investments BV (TKPI), managing around €25bn in assets using a multi-management style. TKPI is a subsidiary of Aegon Asset Management (€350 bn).  Roelie has had numerous functions and additional positions within the investment industry. Most recently she was Chair of the Non-Executive Board within the one-tier board of the Dutch Railway Pension Fund (around €16bn AUM). Currently she is a Board Member of the Dutch Fund and Asset Management Association.
