Hi! I am Erik L. van Dijk, principal at LMG Emerge. LMG is an institutional investment consultant active in the Dutch and some other Continental European Markets. Our clients are pension plans and other institutional investors, family offices and HNW individuals. Key element of our top-down approach is the asset allocation system that we built in close cooperation with Noble Prize Winner dr Harry Markowitz. During the last 5 years we have expanded the system in terms of number of asset classes and countries covered. With now about 100 nations covered by the system, we have established ourselves a reputation as Emerging Markets specialists. We believe that the role of New Economies has become ...More much more important. Not just in terms of our money flowing into those economies, but also the other way round with wealth funds and other big investors from those countries investing here. Either through portfolio investments or M&A's. LMG advises all who have to deal with or want to benefit from these changes. We also provide our clients with asset manager selection services. Our recommendations are independent and transparent and based on thorough analysis of our manager database that contains more than 400 international managers with on average 10-20 products/strategies each. We believe in active management when possible and passive solutions when necessary.
