“I am delighted to welcome Bastiaan to the company in such an important role. We have seen strong client demand for our services in The Netherlands and the Nordics and we expect this to be a key growth area for us under Bastiaan’s direction.”

Bastiaan Aalders commented:

“I have known Alpha FMC since 2010 and I have always been impressed with the high quality of their service delivery. With the rise of new technologies, complexity of data, new and alternative investment methods, both opportunities and threats are imminent to our clients. We also notice a renewed interest for Outsourcing and Target Operating Model reviews in the region. Through Alpha’s global practices and international experience, we are very well positioned to support our clients and I believe that we can play a significant role in transforming the Asset and Wealth Management landscape of The Netherland and the Nordics”.
