Matthijs has obtained a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering (BSc) and a master’s degree in industrial design engineering (MSc) at Delft University of Technology.
The interest in the financial world has always been present, however. Apart from his technical studies he followed a set of econometric and economic courses at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. Furthermore, he was a member of student investment society B&R Beurs. His interest in numerical analyses and the bespoke approach that is needed for every due diligence project (similar to a design project) is what has drawn him to financial due diligence.
In his free time, Matthijs enjoys riding his bike and deejaying.
