Aug 8 2011 | 10:59am ET

Dutch hedge fund Saemor Capital has hired an investor relations chief as it prepares a serious fundraising push.

Erwin de Kleijn joins Saemor from Finles Capital Management. He'll serve as the US$650 million firm's investor relations manager.

"After Saemor focused on building the track record in its first three years, we now feel it is time to expand our investor base," CEO Sven Bouman told HedgeWeek. "Given the attractive performance we are enjoying at the moment, we expect to see more interest from institutional investors seeking to invest in our fund."

Saemor's Europe Alpha Fund, which is up 5.9% this year, was seeded by insurer Aegon in 2008.
