Trading Project

High frequency trading is excitement: high speeds and high turnover rates. Sophisticated technological tools and computer algorithms are used to rapidly trade securities. Trading originated in Amsterdam at the Amsterdam Stock Exchange and Amsterdam is still essential in the development of trading today.


This project will give students the chance to discover the world of trading. Over the course of one day, students will be offered the opportunity to meet two of the greatest Dutch trading firms.

Who are we looking for

This project is designed for students from backgrounds in beta/econometrics in the final stage of their Bachelor’s or Master’s program. All students with an interest in trading can apply via our website. Fluency in Dutch is not required.
