Winners Bert Douwes Award 2018 visit the Amsterdam exchange

Bauke van der Sluis and Mees van de Wetering, winners of the Bert Douwes Award 2018, sound the gong to open the trading day at Beursplein 5.

The two students of the Hogeschool van Amsterdam Minor Beleggen have been selected from a number of nominees as authors of the best paper in 2018. Within the minor, which lasts for six months, students have to write a paper about a current investment topic. The winning paper dealt with the influence and use of Big Data in the financial world, and in particular the investment market.

The award (the Bert Douwes Award) is named after a teacher of the minor, Bert Douwes, who died in 2007 and is awarded annually by a jury consisting of Ton Ruitenburg (former Euronext), Eelco Hessling (ex Euronext and lecturer of Investment Ethics at the HvA ) and Theo Feijen (former option trader and lecturer in behavioral analysis at the AUAS) and consists of a sculpture and € 1500, - which is made available annually by the Capital Amsterdam Foundation.
