We are delighted to inform you that Herman Spliethoff has entered the Advisory Board of the Anders Invest Evergreen Fund. Sir Spliethoff is an experienced investor, management consultant, entrepreneur and supervisor. He is co-owner of the Amsterdam shipping company Spliethoff with more than 100 ships and well-known brands such as BigLift Shipping, Transfennica, Wijnne Barends and Sevenstar. He has broad experience with working for private equity firms via management positions at QAT Investments and Hervest Participations and a supervisory role at TBL Mirror Fund. The previously appointed members of the Advisory Board are Henk Willem van Dorp and Frederik van Beuningen. The Advisory Board has decided that Frederik van Beuningen will become the chairman.
On 15 September 2016 the first member meeting of the fund took place at gAvilar in Dordrecht, the most recent investment of Anders Invest. The management of gAvilar gave a tour through the factory to the more than 20 investors who attended this meeting. They also gave an explanation about the strategy of gAvilar. Meetings at the location of companies are highly appreciated by investors and fit to the special character of Anders Invest by engaging investors and participations in one another. The fund management presented two to three deals which they expect to close the coming months. Because of the fast growth it is likely that the fund will raise capital at the end of the year and will be opened to new investors.
Finally we want to point out that gAvilar has a new website (www.gavilar.nl/en) which gives detailed information about products, services and expertise in the field of gas control systems. The website has a multi-lingual design in order to support the planned internationalization.
