Characteristics of these organisations are, that there is a relatively large group of stakeholders, such as external financial shareholders, The Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) and/or “De Nederlandsche Bank” (DNB). All our professionals are chartered accountants (in training). We are from Amsterdam, independent and modern. This last point is expressed, mainly since ENDYMION Amsterdam was founded as a modern cooperation. Next to that it is important to us that we are socially involved. E.g., we are partnered with Natura Artis Magistra, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Internationaal Theater Amsterdam (ITA), NedPho, Nationale Opera & Ballet, football team CTO’70, contemporary Amsterdam artiest Dave Dekker and others.

“Contemporary Public Audit in the FinTech District Amsterdam”.

The structure of the company (Design), the quality of responsibility (Transparency), and the way in which (external) trust can be provided. We will also discuss the diverse roles and responsibilities in the line of work of accountants, advisors and supervisors.
