Munich, 16 August 2023 – The investment manager, KINGSTONE Real Estate, has recruited a further highly-experienced fund initiator and manager, with Voas Brouns joining Jean Klijnen at its Dutch subsidiary, KINGSTONE Benelux B.V., as Co-Managing Partner. Together with Klijnen, Brouns will expand KINGSTONE Real Estate’s activities in the economically thriving Benelux countries. The focus will be on residential real estate, including student and senior living. Other forms of commercial real estate will also be considered.
Voas Brouns has over 40 years of experience in the real estate investment management business and has held senior positions at, among others, APG, Bouwfonds Investment Management, Vesteda and, most recently, as the founder and Managing Partner of Catella Investment Management Benelux. The new Co-Partner of KINGSTONE Benelux B.V. brings extensive international expertise in residential real estate investments into the firm. During recent years, he has successfully established residential real estate funds for German institutional investors.
Brouns takes up his new role at KINGSTONE with enthusiasm: “Due to its sustainable excess demand, the Dutch residential real estate market is very attractive. Given the current market upheaval, we expect to see some exciting investment opportunities coming up in the near term. To ensure we generate attractive returns for our investors in today’s market environment, the right timing is essential. This is where many decades of intensive and carefully fostered contacts with the relevant players on the Dutch residential real estate market will be very beneficial.”
