As from 1st January 2022, Niels Bruijninckx has joined Edmond de Rothschild REIM Benelux as Director of Investments. Niels is focussing on the further growth of assets under management with new acquisitions in the industrial and office sector. Edmond de Rothschild REIM has just completed successful capital raising campaigns and brought about growth in the various funds.

Onno Scheij, Head of Benelux, and Robbert Bakhuijsen, Head of Investments, are pleased to strengthen the team and are certain that Niels will make an important contribution with his extensive experience in the commercial sector.

Niels’s task is to further increase investments in the various real estate investment vehicles of Edmond de Rothschild in the Benelux, such as the Edmond de Rothschild European Industrial Fund (EIREF), Benelux Commercial Real Estate Fund (BCREF) as well as other mandates.

Niels (41) graduated in Real Estate Finance at the University of Amsterdam and started his career in 2006 at OVG Project Development as Commercial Manager. After a short period at Regus in the Amsterdam Area he made a career switch to Asset Management. In his last role he was a senior Asset and Transaction Manager at M7 Real Estate, responsible for offices and last mile logistics.

Robbert Bakhuijsen commented, “From the outset, Niels will focus on promising strategies that meet the current needs in the post-pandemic Benelux real estate markets. His focus will be on asset classes such as urban industrial and logistics, which are strengthened by long-term trends such as urbanization, e-commerce growth and last-mile delivery, and meet the needs of clients in the Benelux.”
