On the 4th and the 5th of April 24 students had the opportunity to meet Professional Investment Managers. During the course of two days, the participants enjoyed the possibility of showing their skills in several Asset Management business cases. The bar was set as all participants showed a thorough understanding of the theory necessary in order to succeed in Asset Management.
The event started at the Kempen & Co headquarter in Amsterdam, followed by a lunch with several employees of Kempen & Co. After the inhouse moment at Kempen we travelled down to Rotterdam, where we enjoyed a solid presentation about Robeco Investment Management followed by a challenging investment case. We finished the program of the first day with a well-organized dinner and drinks at Robeco.
After the official program ended we checked in at the NH Atlanta Hotel, located in the heart of Rotterdam. The atmosphere in the group was great and after a few drinks in the lounge, we continued our way to the Witte de With where we topped off the day at Café de Witte Aap. After a few drinks at the White Monkey some of the applicants could not resist the temptation to stop for a pint or two at the Skihut.
The next day we travelled to The Hague to enjoy a company presentation at NN Investment Partners. After the presentation, all participants used their knowledge to compete against one another in an exciting Investment Game. Team Poison Pills won with just two percent point difference from team Killer Bees and furthermore every team did beat the market at the end of the game! Finally, we had dinner with the NN recruiters and Asset Management professionals to end the program after two great days.
