Hans-Willem was a friend to many in the financial and alternative investment industry and will be remembered for a long time and very much missed.

He began his career with Cargill Group in 1969. After various positions in Holland (training), Brazil (grain trader), Belgium (building and operating a Holiday Inn franchise motel), New York (metal trader for Cargill subsidiary) and Tokyo, he returned to Geneva in '79 to concentrate on non grain related acquisitions. He joined the brokerage company of the group (CIS) in 1984 as futures broker, but concentrated, since 1989, on Hedge Funds and their developments.
