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.

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.
