Interested in getting to know thé world’s largest pension asset manager with over 550 billion euros in assets? Sign up for the APG Asset Management inhouse day! 

With total assets under management of EUR 556 billion (February 2020), APG Asset Management is one of the largest asset managers in the world. In contrast to many asset managers, the majority of our assets are managed internally, which allows our employees to bear responsibility for their own investing decision, thereby working at the front end of the global financial markets. Through our core values, we differentiate ourselves from traditional investment firms, such as investment banks and trading houses. We are a market leader in the field of responsible investing with our very ambitious sustainable investing policy. On top of that, we are not solely focused on making money and profits, but have a very clear objective to obtain investment returns that are attractive and sustainable to ensure high-quality pension benefits for our 4,5 million participants. We achieve this by attracting very talented employees, offering them a position in which they can make a difference, while maintaining an attractive work-life balance and offering competitive salaries.

During the APG Asset Management inhouse day, we will show you what it is we do on a daily basis. Our speakers will engage you by diving into some of the many different asset classes that APG invests in. You will see that APG invests in the entire market spectrum! This spectrum ranges from liquid Equities and Bonds to the opaque world of private markets such as Infrastructure, Real Estate and Private Equity. Besides that, we continuously work on innovative ideas to improve the investment algorithms in our Quant Equity and Quant Credit portfolios. By introducing you to the APG Asset Management traineeships, we will also show you the opportunities available within our organization for young talented starters.

Making Markets. Making a Difference. 

IMC is a market maker and one of the world’s leading trading firms. We are mathematicians, makers, and mavens. Traders, technologists, and tacticians. We think globally, commit locally, solve problems methodically and give back seriously. Being smart gets you in the door. Continuously striving for improvement and a restless curiosity will help you succeed.


Being a market maker means being ready to buy or sell securities at any time, facilitating the transfer of risk for market participants. Our highly-automated systems and trading strategies ensure tighter ‘spreads’ between bid and offer prices, reducing costs for buyers and sellers. Solving complex problems and learning constantly, we’ve played our part in making financial markets more efficient for almost 30 years. 


We work better when we work together. Of course, with more than 600 people from many cultures and nationalities, working across time zones and locations, teamwork can be its own complex challenge. Good thing we like complex challenges! 

The solution: an open, diverse culture built on trust, integrity, and the exchange of knowledge and ideas. And a team of driven, dynamic people empowered to be creative, to communicate openly, and to collaborate. Across offices in Amsterdam, Sydney and Chicago, we encourage our people to learn, improve and innovate, and give them all the support they need to do so.
