LONDON – 21 March 2022 – Adams Street Partners, LLC, a private markets investment management firm with over $51 billion of assets under management, announced this week that Joost Mioch has joined the firm as regional head of Benelux, operating out of the firm’s Munich office. Mr. Mioch joins from BlackRock and brings with him considerable private markets expertise.
The new appointment reflects Adams Street’s commitment to serve the demands of a greater share of capital within the region, where it has been active for over two decades. Benelux has witnessed considerable growth in deal volume over the past decade. It has also seen pension funds taking an increasingly sophisticated approach to private market investment, including ESG integration.
Among the firm’s various capabilities in private markets, we believe our private credit team is particularly well-positioned to serve the pensions and insurance markets among other participants, particularly in the current low-yield environment.
John Kremer, EMEA Head of Investor Relations, added: “Joost’s specialist experience will be valuable as we continue to grow the institutional franchise within the Benelux region, with wider support from our Munich office.”
“Entrepreneurial and niche private equity strategies are increasingly popular with Benelux based pension funds. Moreover, exposure to venture capital promises to add value to the region’s real economy,” said Mr. Mioch. “I look forward to driving this growth effort as part of the wider Adams Street team.”
