Jouw rol

Last year MN and PGGM launched the Academic Excellence Program (AXP). Two of the largest pension service providers in the Netherlands with a combined AUM of over EUR 400 billion offer students the opportunity to work on cutting edge graduation assignments.

  • Optimize venue selection – Overseeing the different places to trade, where should we execute our order?
