What do we offer?
As a Business Consultant, you contribute to a variety of activities within projects in the field of financial risk management for large and medium-sized insurance companies.

Your Tuesday starts with coffee or tea at the 15th floor of our beautiful building in Rotterdam, looking out over the Maas river, followed by a team meeting about how to best help clients with their ORSA (Own Risk and Solvency Assessment) and monitoring processes. On Wednesday you visit one of our Netherlands-based customers for a face-to-face meeting. On Thursday you work with one of your team members on an article on inflation and liquidity risks for insurers, ready to be published. Finally, on Friday you are working together with the developers’ team to discuss new model features to help service our international client’s needs. After which you join the biweekly company-wide ‘Friday live’ meeting.
