“Kempen has a sincere commitment to ESG at the firm level,” declares Narina Mnatsakanian, Director, Impact and Responsible Investment, who joined the firm in 2017 having previously spent over eight years working at UN PRI and MN. “Our top level commitment helps to differentiate us as an organisation by fully integrating ESG as an active owner. Active ownership has always been part of our DNA ever since the beginning, 26 years ago, when we launched our Dutch small cap fund and our European equity fund, which pursue a focused, concentrated and engaged strategy.”
ESG’s growing importance at Kempen over the past 10 years has had an increasing impact on: governance; internal staff resources; external consultancies, engagement, voting and memberships of various industry organisations.
