Walter Van Helvoirt
ESG Officer, Private Equity FMO
Walter van Helvoirt (MSc HRM) joined FMO in 2004, after 6 years in Human Resources Management for two large corporates in The Netherlands. For the last 6 years he worked in FMO’s Private Equity team, most recently working with GPs across the globe on FMO’s new investments. The constructive and hands-on cooperation FMO is seeking, appeals to many investees, making ESG more practical while bringing out the value instead of a solely compliance driven attitude. FMO’s experience investing Private Equity in Africa stretches over several decades, defining Impact Investing by being one of the patriarchs in incorporating ESG.
