We are pleased to inform you that, as of November 2017, Candriam will join Belfius as the new main sponsor of the Belgian hockey federation for a period of 7 years, in other words right up to the Paris Summer Olympics in 2024.
The partnership includes sponsorship of the different national teams, the women’s league, referees, and youth training.
In recent years, both the men’s and women’s national hockey teams have been climbing the international rankings in impressive style.
As a proud partner of the Belgian Hockey Federation and of Belfius, we shall use this upward trend to further boost Belgian hockey over the next few years.
Our Belgian roots and the values we have in common with this sport, such as respect, fair play and team spirit, make us natural partners in this undertaking.
The partnership embodies our wish to nourish Belgian talent and encourage the expression of national and collective pride at sporting occasions.
Naïm Abou-Jaoudé, CEO of Candriam Investors Group and Chairman of NYLIM International: "We are proud to have worked alongside a leading group such as Belfius for the last 20 years and are very happy to co-partner the Belgian Hockey Federation in supporting and cheering on our young Belgian talents. As a responsible asset manager, we obviously share with hockey the values of respect, fair play and team spirit."
