About us

RiskQuest believes in a world where risks are taken in a calculated way. In an ever more complex world, there is also an increasing need for risk management. Models are an important tool here. They help to understand underlying risk factors and relationships better. Models thus contribute to transparency, cost-effectiveness and eventually to making the right decisions. While models form the core of our service, we consider them as a means instead of the purpose. Models cannot replace people.

Our services focus on all aspects of models: data, model development, validation, policy and strategy. Over the years, we have been able to build an impressive customer base. We not only work for all major Dutch financial institutions (banks, insurers and pension funds), but also for supervisors and clients outside the financial sector. Our customers always return, because they know we consistently deliver high quality.

We are RiskQuest: a team of 35 ambitious individuals with quantitative backgrounds in econometrics, mathematics and physics. We value social interaction and an informal work environment with a lot of individual freedom. In no-time you will be part of our great team!
