Focus on the Netherlands (HFM Week)
HFMWeek talked to three industry experts about the opportunities the Netherlands to provide hedge funds, the country’s growth prospects and the impact of EU regulation.
Sven Bouman (Seamor Capital): 'The Netherlands is often called 'the gateway to Europe', being idially situated near the UK, Germany, France and Belgium'.
Remco Bleijs (Ernst & Young): 'The biggest cities, Amsterdam, Utrecht, The Hague and Rotterdam, are all good places for families and for having a good time'.
Pieter-Jan van der Pols (Circle Partners): 'The economic crisis and Euro-scepticism do have a negative impact on business development and growth of hedge fund assets, but we are confident that we will see an upturn in the near future'.
