Our Company

We are a consultancy specialized in (risk) models for the financial sector. In an increasingly complex world, there is also an increasing need to manage risks. Models are an important instrument in this regard. Our services focus on all aspects of the use of models: data, model development, validation, policy and strategy.

In recent years we have been able to build up an impressive customer base. We work for all major Dutch financial institutions. In addition, we are continuously expanding our services.

We are a team of 40 ambitious individuals, almost all of whom have a quantitative background in econometrics, mathematics and physics. Mutual social contacts and an informal working atmosphere with a lot of individual freedom are important to us. You quickly become part of our close-knit team.

Your day at RiskQuest

  • Start

    08:30  -  09:30

    You enter our office at the Herengracht and start the day with a nice conversation in the coffee corner. Have you read the latest news on financial crime?

  • Client Meeting

    10:00  -  11:00

    Time for a meeting with one of our clients. They want to know about the most material money laundering risks for their portfolio, and how we can identify fraudulent transactions using machine learning. Interesting!

  • Lunch

    12:00  -  13:00

    Time for lunch! And don’t forget to prepare for the RiskQuest table tennis tournament

  • Development of Machine Learning Model

    14:00  -  16:00

    Together with your colleagues you start working on a first version of a machine learning model to detect ML transactions for the client you spoke to in the morning.

  • Presentation Preparation

    16:00  -  17:00

    Because it is very important to not only make good models, but also explain them, you prepare some slides that elaborate on how the ML model works. You make sure the slides are nice and clean, because tomorrow is the follow-up meeting with the client

Some insights from your colleagues at Financial Crime Analyatics

The opportunities for development are pretty much infinite. It mainly depends on yourself, showing that you want to develop and having the will to actually do so. This aspect, combined with a really nice and informal atmosphere definitely makes RiskQuest stand out.
