VB Risk Advisory is a high-quality consultancy party in which pragmatism and quality towards the customer are essential. Furthermore, the consultant’s professional and personal development is central to our way of working.

We are a group of young professionals and more experienced consultants with strong quantitative knowledge who solve complex quantitative issues together. The client always has our attention, but the employee’s satisfaction is also considered. The development of the consultants is heavily stimulated, with room for relaxation. There is a great team spirit in the workplace due to regular team activities, which is reflected in the happiness and satisfaction of our employees.

VB offers advisory and interim services to banks, asset managers, insurers, and other financial institutions. We also aim to provide consistent and high-quality services, addressing clients’ strategic and operational obstacles in the risk, finance, and treasury sectors. We support the design, development, and implementation of practical solutions to challenges driven by the ever-changing environment. This includes addressing external demands, such as the changing regulations and reporting requirements, but also internal developments, such as the design or enhancement of management information processes.


We always deliver quality to the customers and ensure that the customer relationship remains good.
We are performance-driven, reflected in the quality of the work delivered.


We think in terms of solutions and are flexible in this regard. When a customer has an additional request, we are as flexible as possible to meet this request.
Additionally, we facilitate our consultants to come up with good ideas.

Personal Attention

We take the extra step to give the customer and our employees much personal attention.
We ensure that our consultants develop quickly and satisfactorily. We adapt the development process to the wishes of both the consultant and the customer.

Our Mission and Vision

Our mission is to treat our consultants as our most important asset. We provide them with the best training possible to become the next generation of quants. They take a flexible and pragmatic approach to delivering high-quality advisory services. As a result, we solve our clients’ challenges by implementing sustainable solutions in quantitative risk management that help them achieve their goals.

Our vision is to be known for providing clients with exceptional quantitative solutions and to be recognised for our excellent consultants while being a unique employer valued by its employees for focusing on their personal development and happiness.

History, the Present, and the Future

VB Risk Advisory was founded in 2017. In five years, we grew from just two founders working from client offices to a team of 25+ people with our own office. Nonetheless, the entrepreneurial spirit is still present, as there is room for own initiatives and an informal working atmosphere internally. At VB, we have a close-knit team of consultants and managers, which shows. This is noticeable in the will to go the extra mile to develop further and support each other.

We see ourselves growing into an established name within the financial industry, becoming a mature consultancy while retaining the critical points mentioned above. We will continue expanding our consultancy services in the financial sector and outside of it. While doing this, we aim to retain our current identity and continue to build on our present ingredients for success.
