Amsterdam the natural choice for financial services

Amsterdam is key financial hub that attracts globally minded institutions and top international talents. The Amsterdam Metropolitan Area has a rich heritage as a financial centre. It was home to the world’s first central bank and stock exchange during the Golden Age, and is now home to approximately 50 international banking chains including ICBC, Deutsche Bank, Royal Bank of Scotland, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, and Citibank, as well as more than 20 major insurance companies. It is one of the world’s largest trading centres for derivatives, and the Amsterdam Stock Exchange, which was established in 1602, is still going strong in the heart of the city centre, presently managed by Euronext Amsterdam. The Dutch financial sector employs about 270,000 people in total.
