On the evening of last April 24th at the Ugly Duckling office in Amsterdam we celebrated the birth of our new series of events for financial engineers. We called it Financial Engineering Netherlands, and we hope we will create a community of specialists that everybody can join and consult.
The aims of Financial Engineering Netherlands are
- to bring together experts with similar passions, who are willing to improve themselves by sharing their knowledge with others, keeping the topics within the interest range of financial engineers, and hence including testing, programming, technology, finance, mathematical finance, etc. as subjects of discussion;
- to create an intellectually stimulating and social environment, where people can discuss about trends, problems, progress and achievements in any of the above-mentioned fields, in order to find what really matters in our work and discover how we can improve ourselves in a collaborative way.
