Most appealing to me in corporate finance is that every process is different, because no company is the same. There is no standard procedure for going through an M&A or restructuring process and the heterogeneity of this work provides new challenges every time. On the other hand, the purpose behind these challenges always is to provide a proper performance of the expected services for the client. A satisfied client is the goal that JBR and I strive for.
In 2021, I completed the master Financial Economics in Rotterdam, after I first finished my bachelor Economics and business Economics in Groningen. During my master, I shaped my curriculum to attend the courses correlated to corporate finance. The choice for a corporate finance boutique was made at an early stage because I wanted to work closer together with the client. I came in contact with JBR through a workshop at the Risk conference in Groningen.
In my opinion, the most educational challenge in corporate finance is explaining the fundamentals of a company. Furthermore, I believe that a prosperous co-operation with a client can be a key factor to success. The social skills I gathered through the years give me an advantage in that co-operation. Also, I enjoy working with numbers especially while preparing valuation statements.
The thing that makes me happy in my work is a smooth collaboration with my colleagues. Because of the open attitude of the team of JBR I know that I will find that here. The challenges I want to face here at JBR are to strengthen the team and to guide clients through a successful corporate finance process.
