Insparo Names Kruys COO

Jul 17 2008 | 8:28am ET

Insparo Asset Management has appointed Simone Kruys as its chief operating officer. Kruys was previously finance director at Asian investment management firm BDT Invest.

Kruys most recently worked as a real estate fund accountant for Cambridge Place Investment Management, where she was involved in the launch of its pan-European Real Estate Fund.

“Although Insparo is only recently established, we are unashamedly institutional in style,” said Mohammed Hanif, principal. “Like the rest of the senior management team, Simone brings with her an excellent track record and a depth of experience that will serve Insparo and our investors well.”
 
Insparo was established by Hanif and Francis Beddington in July 2007 and launched its inaugural fund, the Insparo Africa and Middle East Fund, with US $125 million, in May.
