Treasurer Search Newsletter April 2017

Our last newsletter was just before the Dutch elections. Dust has settled, time to get back to business. In our team Heleen has quickly and successfully found her place, already landing various new assignments. We are looking forward to the Dutch Fintech Awards and Financial Systems. The response we receive on the Flex Treasurer, the SME interim treasury concept we initiated with treasuryXL, is positive but we want to promote Flex Treasurers furthermore.

Give me a call when you are interested,

Dutch Fintech Awards & Financial Systems

The people of Alex van Groningen invited me to their annual Dutch and European Fintech awards. Topics discussed will partly have an overlap with corporate treasury, I hope to see some of you over there. I will review the event and am ready to be inspired. Tickets are still available. Get your ticket with discount via treasuryXL

Furthermore treasuryXL will have a booth at Financial Systems, where finance meets IT. Goal is to, like last year, add some corporate treasury to the event. Most likely I will host a parallel session with the title: “Technology that puts your bank in offside position”. The event is free for visitors. Read more about the event on our website


Treasury Jobs

We want to highlight the following three assignments in our portfolio:

- Business Development Manager Treasury / WCM Software - Home office/Nederland
- Treasury Project Manager - Amsterdam Region
- International Treasury Analyst - Rotterdam


treasuryXL presents: Basel III and the impact on cost of hedging

by Arnoud Doornbos (Treasury Services)
Corporates will save hedging costs and administrative costs significantly if they shift their hedging activities to exchanges such as CME (Chicago Mercantile Exchange).
In the summer of 2007 a large number of defaults on U.S. mortgage loans did arise. The banks were hit hard by the global domino effect that resulted. A major financial crisis which was followed by an economic crisis led to a revision of the capital requirements of Basel I and Basel II. Read the article on treasuryXL


Your headhunter, your doctor?

My father was a hard-working, well-educated and proud man. He took the lead and was in control. That is why I was surprised when I visited his doctor with him. He put his fate in the hands of the expert and followed. This is the candidate behaviour I saw as research consultant 20 years ago. The partners in the executive search firm I worked in could take the lead in career decisions of candidates.

Between then and now things changed from one extreme to another. Read the article on our website
