After graduating in International Economics in Tilburg, the Netherlands, Maarten joined Banque Paribas Capital Markets in Amsterdam and London. In 1990, after two years at Theodoor Gilissen, Maarten started the forerunner of what would later (in 1996) become the VermogensGroep.
With its revolutionary platform-oriented approach, VermogensGroep was the founder of what is now considered to be the general standard in asset management and is known as fiduciary management. After a short joint venture with ABN AMRO, VermogensGroep was sold to UBS Bank Nederland in 2008.
At UBS Nederland, Maarten was CEO for five years, followed by another two years in the Supervisory Board.
Since 2014, he’s been focusing on investing and providing guidance to promising new enterprises and initiatives. Maarten is also directly involved in flks.nl, leuker.nl (platforms aimed at young people), and bydehand.com (a personal record-keeping and financial overview platform).
Maarten is married to Marion and has five children. Besides sport, he’s interested in modern and contemporary art.
