My name is Bram Alkemade, and I am the treasurer of the XXIIIrd board of the Financial Study association Rotterdam. After I graduated from High School, I spent a year playing college tennis in the United States, after which I decided to move to Rotterdam to obtain my Bachelor’s diploma in Economics and Business Economics (IBEB). In my first year, I joined student association R.S.V. Laurentius, while in my third year, as part of my bachelor’s program I studied at The University of Hong Kong for four months, which was an amazing experience. During my time in Hong Kong, one of the biggest financial centers in the world, I realized that a board year at FSR would be the perfect opportunity to learn what the financial, accounting and consulting disciplines have to offer.
As the treasurer, it is my responsibility to manage the expenses and revenues of the largest independent study association of the EUR. It is my task to know how the FSR is doing financially and to communicate this to my fellow board members. In case a certain negative trend is developing I have to intervene in time, while positive trends also have to be recognized to seize certain financial possibilities. Together with the Commissioner External Relations and the Vice-President, I frequently analyze where we can improve our revenues, while together with the president I inform the Treasury Supervisory Board of the financial position of the FSR. In this position, you will always be working together with every other board member, which makes it a very interesting and fun position. In the end, you are the one with the total financial overview, which makes your input of much relevance. In addition to your financial tasks, the treasurer is also responsible for the organization of the Asset Management Tour, multiple Conferences, and several Masterclasses. Furthermore, the treasurer helps with organizing the International Banking Cycle and has the freedom to develop new projects within the FSR.
If you have any further questions or interest in becoming a board member, don’t hesitate to contact me or drop by our office to get in touch with me or one of my fellow board members!
