Background

KP in KPValuePlatform stands for Klaver Partners BV, a fund representation company Edwin Klaver founded in 2005. In 1989 he started his career at Merrill Lynch in New York and worked subsequently in the firm’s London and Zurich equity departments.  In 2001 he became an MD at Petercam Bank in Amsterdam, responsible for their equity brokerage activities in the Netherlands.

Since 2017 KP has worked closely with Guus Drijver and as such he has become a partner in in the representation of the funds we have chosen to work with.  Guus studied Law at Erasmus University after which he held various management positions  with, inter alia, van Ommeren, a predecessor company of  Vopak, and ABN Amro.  Subsequently, he founded the first peer-to-peer marketplace for consumer loans in the Netherlands.  Before joining Monolith Investment Management in 2014, Guus started the Rotterdam Office for Friesland Bank which he then managed for several years.  Besides his robust network in Rotterdam, he also has a firm foothold in Antwerp and Brasschaat.  His network aligns itself well with KP’s target group of entrepreneurs, family offices and wealth managers.
