Marian Hogeslag (1966)
After studying French language and literature at Utrecht University, in 1991 Marian joined Paribas Deelnemingen, the private equity arm of BNP Paribas in the Netherlands. It was there that she discovered her passion for investing in mainly family-owned businesses. For several years she also worked for the subsidiary Paribas Advies , both in Amsterdam and Paris, where she was responsible for various mergers, acquisitions and capital market transactions. In 2001 she joined Petercam Bank as Director of Corporate Finance where she met Ward Kastrop and Remco Vinck. In light of developments in the field of good corporate governance and shareholder stewardship, Marian decided to set up ActivInvestor Management in 2005. ActivInvestor Management was specialised in property equity investments, corporate governance and shareholder stewardship. On 1 April 2014 ActivInvestor Management joined forces with DoubleDividend. This merger fused the different disciplines within the two companies: sustainability, investment and corporate governance.
Marian assists the portfolio managers and performs ESG analyses within DoubleDividend. As co-statutory director she also holds primary responsibility for the in-house organisation.
Marian loves to write and co-wrote Goudmijn, alles wat een vrouw moet weten over geld (‘Goldmine, everything a woman needs to know about money’) and Met minder euro’s door het leven (‘Getting through life on fewer euros’). Marian is a supervisory board member of Geneba Properties N.V. Her passion is art and specifically nurturing young artists.
