Origination Debt Capital Market - Benelux Market Internship in Amsterdam (Dutch-speaking)
Our collaborator is looking for a pro-active, energetic, commercially minded and ambitious student or graduate who loves to work – and play – hard to join their Fixed Income team at their headquarters in Amsterdam. The ideal candidate is someone who is not only fluent in Dutch and English but who is also very excited about the idea of researching commercial opportunities in the fixed income primary market and learning the arts of closing deals.
A lot has changed since 2005 when the Group was founded as a small-scale intermediary company in the heart of Amsterdam. Starting out modestly, but ambitiously as one of the first European players in the Carbon Emission (EUA) market, the firm has grown over the years into a reputable international intermediary and trading company that employs over 100 staff members and covers a wide range of products on the global market. Working from offices in Amsterdam, New York and Gothenburg, their various teams draw on their entrepreneurial mindset to serve their clients optimally in their own languages. The goal? To consolidate growth in dynamic existing markets while further exploring new products and emerging markets. Ultimately, their mission is to become a leading trader and market access provider in illiquid environmental commodities and debt capital markets.
Entrepreneurialism and diversity as key success factors
The only thing that hasn’t changed since 2005 is the location of their headquarters: still based alongside Amsterdam’s canals in the vibrant heart of the city. To date, remain one of the few intermediaries in the Dutch capital and one of the only trading firms to have such an international employee base serving the global market. A key driver behind the company’s growth and success is the great diversity within our teams: not only does our in-house staff base comprise an impressive 20 different nationalities, but the (academic) backgrounds of their team members vary widely too. This diversity guarantees that, as a group, they can tap into the creativity and versatility required to continuously develop only the best and most innovative ideas and solutions to problems we encounter. Great performance is rewarded with great growth within the company. They don’t believe in silos; they operate as teams. Cross-country, cross-disciplinary and cross-position collaboration is key. They don’t place much emphasis on hierarchical structures. What do they do value? Entrepreneurial spirits who have great ideas and are keen to join the family to work on building the future together.
Fixed Income became part of the Group in 2013, marking its debut as a worldwide financial products intermediary firm. Working out of their Amsterdam headquarters, all Fixed Income country teams are active in primary, secondary and money markets in their respective countries. The broad variety of products they offer allows gives us access to every aspect of the market. By working closely with top European institutional investors, they are able to offer clients competitive prices, using standardized loans or bonds, and cash deposits.
