Annemiek Bouwmeester and Jan Meijer join Orange Investment Managers

Orange Investment Managers, specialist investment manager with a focus on operational real estate, expands its team with Annemiek Bouwmeester (asset manager) and Jan Meijer (junior analyst).

Annemiek Bouwmeester gained her real estate experience at WPM Group, Colliers International, Intown (currently Aroundtown) and most recently at Vivion Investments where she was active as Junior Portfolio Manager and co-responsible for a European portfolio. At Orange Investment Managers, Annemiek will be responsible for the asset management of part of the real estate portfolio and thus directly involved in achieving the envisaged fund objectives.

Jan Meijer has been appointed junior analyst to support the acquisition and asset management teams. Jan recently completed his Masters in Economic Development and Globalisation at the University of Groningen and worked in a support role at Praxis IFM in Luxembourg during his studies.

“This expansion puts us in a better position to face this challenging period and to ensure a continuous high quality of our services and to invest our clients’ capital in the right way,” says Managing Director Michiel Gerritsen. “This will further enable us to continue to respond appropriately to new investment opportunities”.

Orange Investment Managers currently manages an international portfolio of parking garages in six countries in Europe for institutional investors from its offices in Amsterdam and Düsseldorf. In addition, Orange Investment Managers has started to build up a European portfolio of hotel properties. Like car parks, hotels have also experienced a difficult period over the past 16 months. Nevertheless, we are positive about both asset classes and see opportunities to acquire attractive investments for our clients while limiting risks. We expect to further expand our portfolio with new investments in the short term.
