Raoul de Groot and Rolf Belonje (CEO) now form DMPM's board of directors under the articles of association. DMPM is a member of the Blauwtrust Groep along with sister organizations Quion, Conneqt, and De Hypotheker.
Raoul de Groot has worked as a Fund & Structuring Officer since DMPM's launch in 2016.

As part of his role as COO, Raoul de Groot will be responsible for the range of products and service for investors, monitoring the legal and supervisory framework, and optimizing the internal processes.
‘The Chief Operating Officer is a new role created as a result of DMPM's strong growth since its launch. It is a reflection of our commitment to always improving our business operations. Since starting at DMPM, Raoul de Groot has worked on setting up mortgage platforms that bring together consumer and financial institutions.

I’m looking forward to taking the next steps with Raoul to build up our services,’ says Rolf Belonje on the appointment.

DMPM offers financial institutions an accessible way to build up a Dutch mortgage portfolio by acting as a portfolio manager of an external mortgage label or by using one of our own mortgage providers. These include IQWOON Hypotheken, Robuust Hypotheken, HollandWoont, and Clarian Wonen. I look forward to expanding DMPM's position as a gateway to the Dutch housing finance market as part of my new role as COO.’
