    IEX Investment Influential 2018

    Mary Pieterse-Bloem elected IEX Investment Influential 2018

    Prof. Dr Mary Pieterse-Bloem, Global Head Fixed Income ABN AMRO Private Bank, has been voted the most influential investor of 2018 by her colleagues, the readers of IEXProfs. To celebrate this success Prof Pieterse-bloem will sound the gong.

    About the election

    IEXProfs annually organizes the election for the IEX Investment Influential 2018 (formerly known as Dutch Investment Influential). For two weeks in November, professional investors can cast their vote online, choosing between 150 nominated colleagues. This year’s edition was extra special; the editors of IEXProfs nominated almost seven times as many women as last year. In the Dutch investment sector, five out of six executive positions are occupied by a man. This is not appropriate for the present time and needs to change. The financial industry needs more women. One way to achieve this on the platform, is to put the most important women of the sector in the spotlight. Professional investors agreed because the top 10 was full of influential women. Mary Pieterse-Bloem took the lead from the beginning of the elections and did not let go. She convincingly became the most influential investor 2018.

    About Mary Pieterse-Bloem

    Prof. dr. Mary Pieterse-Bloem is Global Head Fixed Income ABN AMRO Private Bank and, since 2018, also Financial Markets Professor at the Erasmus School of Economics. Besides this, she is chairman of the Rente Gilde, member of the Financial Table of Kon. Industrieele Groote Club, Member of the Advisory Board of the ESAA Certified Pension Executive program and member of the Advisory Board of IEXProfs.

    KNVB and ENGIE launch GO smart mobility program

    KNVB and ENGIE jointly launch the GO smart mobility program 

    In Dutch football there are tens of thousands of games every week. The traffic that goes with it (players, supporters and family members) causes a huge amount of pollution: 65 kiloton of CO₂ emissions per year.

    KNVB and ENGIE are tackling the challenge of achieving CO₂ reduction across all kinds of transport, such as bus, car and train. Various solutions will be developed jointly in the coming years. Such as optimizing the playing schedule, integrating new modes of transport, implementation of smart charging stations and designing technical solutions for, for example, 'driving to the games together'.

    Football is the largest sport in the Netherlands which means that an optimal impact can be generated on CO₂ reduction.

    ENGIE Nederland
    ENGIE stands out with regards to the energy transition of almost all its competitors. Because it is both a technical service provider and an energy supplier, the company can mean just a bit more for its customers. With smart technological solutions, the company looks at whether it can reduce the energy needs of its customers. Then it fills in the remaining energy requirement with renewable energy. ENGIE accelerates the transition with this two-step model.
