Family investment group appoints new chair
Belgian Family-owned investment group De Eik has appointed Titia Van Waeyenberge as its new chair. A member of the controlling Van Waeyenberge family, Titia replaces her father, Piet Van Waeyenberge, who is stepping down after more than 40 years at the helm of the family group, which is located just outside of Brussels. Titia, 40, gained experience as an investment banker for Merrill Lynch in London before joining De Kik in 2007, where she led the investment group’s expansion in Latin America.
Family office specialist leaves EY
David Kilshaw, the private tax and family office specialist, is to retire from EY’s London private client tax practice at the end of June 2018. Kilshaw is widely regarded as one of the most trusted family office advisers in the sector and is expected to continue to work in the area after he leaves EY, although he wasn’t saying in what capacity or where.
Whatever his next move will be, Kilshaw is expected to be in demand, given his more than 30 years of experience and considerable contacts in the family office/ultra-high net worth world.
Before joining EY, Kilshaw was head of private client tax for KPMG where he was responsible for a team of over 180 people. He was also co-founder and chairman of KPMG’s international private client network.
