We acknowledge with great sadness the passing of a former AIMA board member, Hans-Willem Reinier, Baron van Tuyll van Serooskerken, heer van Vleuten, Knight in the order of Oranje-Nassau, who passed away on 11 February 2020. Hans-Willem served on AIMA’s board from 1995-2003 and was Chairman from 2001-2003.

Hans-Willem had an illustrious career history, beginning his career with Cargill Group in 1969 followed by various global roles including in Holland, Brazil, Belgium, New York, Tokyo, and Geneva. He joined the brokerage company of the group (CIS) in 1984 as futures broker, and focused on hedge funds and their developments since 1989.

The last years of his career with Cargill Group were spent in the futures brokerage arm, where he focused his energy on the development of Cargill's fund and hedge fund businesses. In 1992 he was elected to the board of the Cargill International Pension Board and also served as Member of Advisory Board of PerTrac Financial Solutions.

Hans-Willem will be remembered for his significant contribution to the financial and alternative investment industry and will be very much missed.
