The company

DLM Finance provides Fund-, Risk-, and Treasury Management solutions, through its in-house developed system, the Trade Manager. DLM Finance handles complex Treasury processes for our clients. Our clients are mainly active in ‘frontier’ markets. Our team has an in-depth knowledge of treasury and risk management. We assist our clients in managing their trades, which are mostly complex financial loans or derivatives in exotic currencies.

We are a stable, but growing team of 12 people, who have extensive international backgrounds in financial markets, in which they performed roles in the areas of treasury, risk management, accounting, back office, administration, taxation and system selection.

In its current form, DLM was established in 2012 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. DLM currently has 40 customers who are almost exclusively emerging/ frontier market funds or fund managers. DLM Finance is a young company that experienced strong growth in the last years. Also toward the future the company has a healthy growth expectation.

Your role

You will perform valuations of trades, execute payments, update exchange rates and interest rates and report to regulators. A special feature of our work is that we focus our services mainly on emerging market currencies, which most banks are unable to handle. We work with a web-based system that we developed in-house.

This role offers you the opportunity to develop a strong network though the relationships that you maintain with your clients. This role offers you a challenging environment in which operational excellence, innovative markets and product development are important ingredients. We operate in a dynamic international environment.

Your profile

  • You have an analytical mindset

  • You have a healthy interest in developing your skills in a challenging treasury environment

  • This is more important to us than your professional experience, which is between 0-3 years
