In 1623, Jan Carstenszoon was commissioned by the Dutch East Indies Company to head up an expedition to further explore the earlier sightings of Australia.
Two ships set forth: The Pera which was captained by Carstenzoon and the Arnhem captained by Willem van Colster. The Arnhem was named after the city of Arnhem in the Netherlands. It was the Arnhem that crossed the Gulf of Carpentaria sighting and hence naming Arnhem Land.
Just like the crew of the Arnhem, we are driven by exploring and discovering new opportunities.
ABN AMRO Asset Management sets up an Australian Equity team in Sydney Australia. George Clapham, Mark Nathan and Neil Boyd-Clark are all founding members and the first Australian Equity Fund is launched in September 2000. This was followed by a Long Short fund in May 2005 and a Concentrated Fund in December 2005.
The team forms a boutique investment management organisation called Fortis Investment Partners, which is 60% owned by the investment team and 40% ultimately owned by the Belgium bank assurance company, Fortis, following their recent take-over of ABN AMRO Asset Management.
We rename ourselves Arnhem Investment Management (’Arnhem’) following BNP Paribas Investment Partners (BNPP IP) purchase of Fortis Investment Management. Arnhem remains 60% owned by the investment team and 40% owned by BNPP IP. Arnhem continues to provide investment management services to its clients as well as those of BNPP IP.
