VB Advisory

VB Advisory solely consists of econometricians whom are specialised in data analytics and financial risk management and have vast experience working as consultants in the financial sector. These experienced consultants will guide you during your journey, but you determine which way you go.

Over the past 5 years, we have noticed that in order to have a successful career in the financial sector it is becoming ever more important to have a specific skillset. We have used our experience in the design of our Young Professionals Program to reflect that need for personal development. We prepare freshly graduated quants to make themselves indispensable in the financial sector by working four days week on a project and spending one full day working alongside your supervisor. This guarantees rapid improvement in the first few months. For example, learning how to design and develop specific models, perform stress tests or scenario analysis or how to look at the impact of new regulations you add value where others cannot. Focus will be on developing that skillset which gives you the opportunity to excel and the ability to add value on a short notice so that during the program your responsibility as well as your impact will increase significantly.
