From markets to management: a podcast with Emiel

By Emiel van den Heiligenberg

An interview on everything from markets to management



I recently recorded a podcast with Bilal Hafeez from Macro Hive, a macro research hub of which I’m a big fan!

I hope you’ll find it interesting as we talk about a very broad range of topics, including markets, my favourite word “teaming”, managing high-performance teams, the “HIPPO” effect, and the pitfalls of working from home.

Emiel van den Heiligenberg

Head of Asset Allocation

Emiel is responsible for the overall strategic direction of the team’s investment and business strategy. He claims to have been a promising lightweight rower at university until French fries got the better of him. Reflecting his love for rowing in a team, he firmly believes that excellence can only be achieved by a great team made up of motivated individuals that are also eager to work together. To this end he is the self-proclaimed inventor of the verb 'teaming' to acknowledge that shaping a top team and culture of excellence is an ongoing process. Outside of work-family obligations, Emiel’s spare time is filled by a passion for shark diving and skiing. Prior to dedicating his career to portfolio management in 1996, Emiel worked as a policy adviser in the Dutch Ministry of Finance and he graduated from Tilburg University in the Netherlands ages ago. When not glued to his Bloomberg screens, this Dutch man is hooked on computer games, peanut butter and his favourite dark beer made by Belgian monks.
