RiskQuest is a consultancy specialized in models for the financial sector. In an increasingly complex world, there is also an increasing need to manage risks. Models are an important instrument in this regard.

The base of these models is the availability of data that is of good quality. RiskQuest observes that one of the challenges is to have readily available data that meets high data quality standards.

The Data Foundation team focuses on helping our clients to have ready-to-use data so they can use this in their business practices like model development and building Data Science solutions.

We are a team of 50+ ambitious individuals, almost all of whom have a quantitative background in econometrics, mathematics and physics. Mutual social contacts and an informal working atmosphere with a lot of individual freedom are important to us. You quickly become part of our close-knit team.
