“Models Cannot Replace People”
A boutique consultancy firm that specializes in smart risk models that create order in a complex financial world.
This ever changing – and complex financial world demands robust risk management, equally robust models which will be the key to success;
While models form the core of their services, they perceive them as a means rather than an end. Statistics are no substitute for judgment – the decision makers must understand what a model can and cannot do.
Aim: co-create, tailor a crucial and unique level of oversight and align the models with their client`s strategies.
Based in central Amsterdam (1000 m2 office) on one of the oldest canals that once formed the financial heart of the city.
A team of 50 ambitious individuals with quantitative backgrounds in econometrics, mathematics and physics. Valuing social interaction (doing fun stuff together) and an informal work environment with much individual freedom.
Their people are the primary reason for their success. Having quantitative backgrounds is key, but also focusing on communications and using a pragmatic approach to find keep-it-simple solutions. “Never go at it alone, involve our clients at each and every step…”
Working hard is important, but they don’t take themselves too seriously. They enjoy what they`re doing and have fun when they can.
It is people that matter most;
A close-knit team of craftsmen who are driven by what we do. The combination of their quantitative background, soft skills and “keep it simple” attitude sets them apart.

Being an associative thinker, with the ability to remember conversations as well as numbers. Treat your clients as your (favorite) sparring partners but remember to talk to about other things that matter - strategically, business proposals, even personal issues.
