FSR | Asset Management College Tour (Conference)

Are you interested in asset management and want to broaden your horizons? Learn more about the industry from CEOs of the biggest funds that are active in the sector!

On January 24, we join forces with the industry association for asset managers in the Netherlands (DUFAS). Together we organise the College Tour, giving you an exclusive look into the world of the challenging and varied asset management sector. Get inspired and find out about your career opportunities!

In the same setting as the Dutch College Tour on television, Sander Heijne, a well-known Dutch journalist, will talk to inspiring CEOs of asset managers. Many different topics will be discussed. Besides a look behind the scenes, you can think about sustainability, social/societal goals, diversity, and moral dilemmas. The College Tour gives you the unique opportunity to ask all your questions about the asset management industry and hear personal experiences from the CEOs. Afterwards, you will have the chance to speak to the CEOs in person while enjoying a drink at the bar. Below you can find a quick introduction of the speakers that will be visiting us at the conference!
