A boutique consultancy firm specialized 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.

Models are an important instrument in this regard. Their services focus on all aspects of the use of models:

  • data
  • model development
  • validation
  • policy and strategy

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: to co-create and tailor a crucial and unique level of oversight and align the models with their client`s strategies.


Based in central Amsterdam 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, Physics, Data Analytics or Data Engineering. 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 they do. The combination of their quantitative background, soft skills and “keep it simple” attitude sets them apart.

Their modest size enables them to work closely with their clients in solving complex challenges. It’s about connecting dots. 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 about other things that matter - strategically, business proposals, even personal issues.


To optimally benefit from their skills, they actively involve senior consultants at any project. To get a job done effectively they do not only involve architects, also brick layers.


Their consultants have experience in the following fields:

  • Risk Governance
  • Model Governance
  • Credit – and Market Risk
  • IFRS 9
  • Pricing
  • AML, detecting Financial Crime (AI experience is a plus), Fraud Detection
  • Risk Aggregation
  • Model Validation
  • Actuarial
  • Client Acceptance
  • Solvency & Basel Regulation
  • Data Analytics

Next level in Machine Learning:

As a Senior Data Science Consultant, you will lead projects that develop machine learning models for leading financial institutions in the Netherlands. In a short time, you will work with the latest machine learning technologies and be exposed to both the strategical and technical aspects of financial crime projects.

These projects help financial institutions to detect fraudulent behavior and make the world a better place.


You will be directly responsible for projects at banks, insurers and pension funds.

Your profile:

  • At least 3 years of experience using AI/ML technologies (to fight financial crime)
  • Master’s degree in artificial intelligence, computer science, data science, econometrics, (applied) mathematics, (applied) physics, or related studies
  • Coaching skills to get the best out of your colleagues
  • A high problem-solving ability and able to distinguish main and side issues
  • You are enthusiastic about all the possibilities that big data offers
  • Love to contribute to a better world
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English (Dutch is a plus)

Your benefits:

  • Challenging projects: you are in the lead to deliver success on great financial crime projects
  • Strong, deep and long-lasting relationships
  • Projects for which there is no script as of yet - delivering high quality
  • Flat hierarchy, short lines, with space to help shape the strategy; your voice and vision contribute to the success
  • A great team of 50 smart, inspiring and sociable colleagues – with the right (social) dynamics, not conservative
  • Ample room and budget for personal development (CAMS, CFE, etc.)
  • Above market primary and secondary employment conditions, with bonus and a steep growth curve
  • Fantastic working location in the heart of Amsterdam
  • Remote work is possible
  • Entrepreneurial thinking is promoted and cultivate an open feedback culture
  • Development opportunities through mentoring, training courses and one-on-one coaching sessions
  • (Equity)Partner potential is a serious option; Salaried Partnership is a viable option (high % of the revenue)

The heart of what they do:

Trusted by industry leaders in the Financial Services Space.

Clients are always at the heart of what they do. They never forget this when advising on risk governance, validate complex risk models or share insights. Their client list is the best endorsement they can offer. It is evidence of something intangible: the trust built by consistently achieving a high level of quality.
