The Asian Association for Investors in Non-Listed Real Estate Vehicles (ANREV) has appointed the founder and partner of Proprium Capital Partners, Willem de Geus, as its new chairman.
He takes over from Nicholas Loup, chief executive of Chelsfield Asia, who held the role for 12 years.
In addition, the association also appointed a deputy chairman in Stephen Tross, chief investment officer for international investments at Bouwinvest.
Loup welcomed the appointment of his successor, referencing his “long history with ANREV”. The new chairman was a founder of INREV, the European sister organisation, and was the architect of the cooperation agreement between the two associations in 2009.
Meanwhile, de Geus said that the association will look to focus on its mission to “improve transparency, professionalism and best practice across the industry in Asia Pacific”.
The key priorities will include training and development for all levels of membership and the “representation of members’ interest with regulators in the main regional fund management centres”.
