With over 18 years of experience in the alternative investment fund industry, including business development, legal and tax advisory roles, Mr. van den Broek brings a wealth of expertise to the firm and offers a unique perspective in order to assist clients in growing their business and navigating complex regulatory and compliance issues.

His ability to present investment managers with innovative solutions is reinforced by his broad experience across the asset management sector. He spent eight years as an Attorney at Law and International Tax Advisor in the Private Equity practice at leading international law firm Baker McKenzie, where he focused on establishing Luxembourg funds and advised on cross border M&A transactions. Mr. van den Broek holds an MSc in Business Administration (Finance) and an LLM in International Tax Law from Erasmus University, Rotterdam.
