MORNING CASE & AFTERNOON SPEEDDATES
Probability & Partners is a fast-growing consultancy firm specialized in Risk Management for the financial sector. We serve banks, insurers, pension funds, asset managers, family offices, and FinTechs. We help our clients in many ways; from building- and validating complex models to the temporary fulfillment of (board level) positions. To ensure our work reflects the latest insights, we keep close ties with academia and perform internal research.
Risk taking is a central part of the business model of our clients. We help them to safeguard that these risks are taken responsibly and consciously. We believe that a diverse mix of people is required to excel in risk management. By combining former risk managers with seasoned consultants and academics, we are able to give high-quality advice. The result of our approach is that clients like to ask us for help with problems that are not straightforward, but require knowledge of a wide range of methods and a thorough understanding of the problem context.
Our culture can be described as open. Our philosophy is that if you want to be involved, you can be involved. We believe that every colleague can make a significant and visible contribution to the firm. To facilitate a healthy work-life balance, we allow you to compensate extra hours for off-days. As we also want our people to be happy with the work they do, we are selective in the assignments we accept and make sure they are interesting and challenging.
Our team is highly international, with colleagues from Aruba, China, Surinam, Russia, Hungary, Mexico, Ukraine, and Italy. P&P is therefore an English-speaking company. To keep up the team spirit we organize a social event at least once a month, such as sailing or our regular nerd night.

Probability & Partners is unique in the wide range of topics and clients it serves within risk management. The challenges faced by clients across sectors have similarities but also key differences. For example, banks, insurers, pension funds, and asset managers are all affected by changes in interest rates but in very different ways. By understanding risks from different perspectives we are able to think and act outside-the-box when providing solutions for our clients.
Another key feature of P&P is that we combine advanced modeling expertise with practical management experience. We understand that not all problems can be solved quantitatively, but that a good model is an ideal starting point for good risk management.
During our case we will zoom in on a few hot topics in the financial sector, which either affect multiple types of institutions, or pose challenges which cannot be solved by modeling alone. We will introduce these themes first, after which small groups will debate about possible solutions together with one of our colleagues. After discussing, each group will share their solutions at the end of each round.
