NETHERLANDS – Blue Sky Group, which manages the pension assets of airline KLM, has recruited Marga Ruitenbeek from the Dutch financial markets regulator for a new position within its investment team.

She will focus on account management and marketing of the group’s investment management services. It is a new position created as a part of what Blue Sky described as a “continued goal to expand its business and to further position the group’s investment management”.

At AFM Ruitenbeek worked for five years as a strategic analyst and researcher. Her responsibilities included providing cost benefit analyses for financial regulation.

The different aspects of her role have been taken over by several analysts, AFM said. Eugene Rebers has taken charge of her pension responsibilities.

AFM monitors the conduct of all parties that are active on the savings, lending, investment and insurance markets. Since September of this year, that includes the share dealings of Dutch pension funds.

Ruitenbeek’s previous experience include commercial relations management at Swiss Life Amstelveen and four years lecturing on economics and finance at the Netherlands Actuarial Institute.
