APG won two Awards for its investments in, respectively, Real Estate and Private Markets at the Investment & Pensions Europe event in Rotterdam. Katherine Kucherenko, investment specialist at APG Asset Management, accepted the awards in front of several hundreds of pension investors from all over Europe.
“The bottom-up fundamental research in combination with a top-down vision on mega trends is outstanding, while the strategy proves that ESG and performance can go hand in hand’, the expert jury commented when awarding the prize for Real Estate to APG.
“We are honored with this award. It is a wonderful appreciation for the hard work of our team and our distinctive, data-driven globally integrated strategy, which is indeed characterized by a strong focus on responsible investing. We look forward to building on this success and continuing to serve our clients and their participants in the coming years,” said Rutger van der Lubbe, Head of Global Real Estate Investment Strategy at APG Asset Management.
“APG is principled and clear-sighted in its approach to investing in real assets and infrastructure. Its longterm perspective and track record – and what phenomenal returns – highlight its success”, stated the expert jury when presenting APG the Award for Private Markets.
“We would like to congratulate all award winners and are delighted with the Private Markets award we have received. It emphasizes the progressive position of our organization and teams within this segment and the contribution we make in the field of ESG integration. Investments in this category fit in well with our clients' long-term commitments and, in addition to an attractive risk-return profile, explicitly offer the opportunity to make a relevant societal impact for our pension fund clients and their participants," says Patrick Kanters, Managing Director Private Investments at APG Asset Management.
