Event overview

ICMA members were invited to an evening of networking in Amsterdam, which featured a discussion between a panel of established capital market professionals about their own career experiences, including how to navigate employment opportunities and setbacks, with their top tips for success in a competitive international business environment.

The panel of 3 consisted of;

Vincent Goedegebuure, Head of Client Coverage within ABN AMRO Corporate & Institutional Banking, who worked across specialised, organisational and leadership roles in consultancy and corporate & investment banking, with recent experience as head of both Structured Finance and Global Markets departments.

Ivana Radujko, Associate Partner at Newington International, who started her career as a financial lawyer in the Netherlands. In 2007, Ivana moved into recruitment, focusing on senior appointments/executive search within the trading and asset management sector, covering multiple asset classes. In March 2017, she joined Newington International, where she is responsible for the European market.

Jaap Kes, Head of Market Risks & Execution team, ING Group Treasury. His focus is liquidity and funding execution and managing the market risks in the banking books and is a member of the Group Treasury management team.

The evening, organized by the ICMA Future Leaders, was of particular benefit to anyone in the earlier stages of their career, but all ICMA members in the region were encouraged to attend!

Networking drinks at ABN Amro's bar on the 23rd floor followed the discussion.
