Financial Adviser / Financieel adviseur
As a Financial Adviser, you have a direct impact on our client’s success in staying in the Netherlands. We work with highly skilled individuals and families from abroad and help our clients understand their financial circumstances in the Netherlands and how to reach their short-term and long-term financial objectives.
In this role, you analyze our client’s financial position and present realistic, meaningful recommendations based on the client’s financial situation and goals to the financial specialist. You will offer advice on many personal finance topics, including savings/investment strategies, estate planning considerations, protection planning through insurance, and retirement accumulation and distribution tactics. You handle all transactional services (product brokerage) to help our clients reach their goals.
We are looking for a Financial Adviser who gets excited about working for a fast-growing company and seeing its direct results. We believe in sustainable growth and long-lasting relationships. So, if you’re obsessed with turning numbers into meaningful advice and improving on a personal and professional level, this role might be the perfect fit for you.
We currently are a team of three (Sezer, Robin, and Egle). Sezer and Robin met at one of the big banks in the Netherlands six years ago, became friends and enjoyed working together ever since. Egle joined the team at the beginning of 2020 and turned out to be a perfect match for the team.
We work from a traditional Amsterdam canal house on Prinsengracht. As we’re spending 40 hours per week together, we find it essential to have a safe and balanced work environment. Snacks are taken care of by Mister Mortgage. We take the time during Whiny Wednesday to share how things are going. Occasionally our Friday evenings are spent at the office with pizza and board games (with music on in the background) or in the city having drinks.
