Our company


Kempen is an international asset manager, headquartered in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. We are part of Van Lanschot Kempen and employ around 450 people in our offices in Amsterdam, New York, London, Antwerp and Paris. We are specialised in Asset Management, Corporate Finance, and Securities. Kempen represents professionalism, entrepreneurship and drive.  

Van Lanschot Kempen:

Van Lanschot Kempen is specialized in the future. Since 1737. Today, about 300 years later, our story - about the oldest independent financial institute in the Netherlands - continues. We are proud of our history and are excited for the future with labels such as Kempen (Asset Manager  & Merchant Bank), Van Lanschot (Private Banking) and Evi (online investing). We do this with about 1,700 colleagues, divided over the 3 labels and the holding company. We have been working with great dedication and financial craftsmanship on our customers' progress for almost 3 centuries. 

To work in a sustainable and future-oriented way, inclusion and diversity are essential. A highly inclusive and diverse workforce helps to drive business performance and innovation, workforce agility and resilience, as well as positive social and environmental impact. It is our ambition for the inflow of each department to be more diverse than the outflow. For example, if an employee leaves or more headcount becomes available, we aim to increase diversity by hiring someone who brings something new to the team. Whether that’s gender, age, nationality, background or anything else.

We offer

Research is at the heart of what we do. That’s why you will have access to large amounts of data and proprietary research. You will be guided by leading field experts, many of whom hold CFA charters or PhDs and regularly appear in the news (Bloomberg, FT, NRC, BNR). Next to this, Kempen offers you:

  • An internship allowance of € 450,- per month;
  • The possibility to conduct your own research;
  • Valuable feedback and loads of opportunities to learn.
