Mount Consulting, a business consulting firm, providing strategic Finance, Risk, Data Management and Architecture advisory services. We are a young and dynamic company with the ambition to grow to a sizable market leader in a short period. That’s why we are looking for talented and ambitious colleagues.
Mount Consulting is primarily an entrepreneurial firm that is not focused on hierarchical structure and conventional standards. We provide an alternative to the common idea of consultancy, by providing an environment where you can be a part of the important discussions and express your mind freely from day one. The absence of a hierarchical structure provides the space for seniors and juniors to work together, leading to a steep learning curve with plenty of support on your way to becoming the next generation of management consultants in the financial industry.
An entrepreneurial and highly motivated intern. We work for all the major (and minor) players in the Dutch financial industry on strategy and transformation projects, tailored to the finance and risk domains. As said, our work is based on detailed knowledge of our clients’ ecosystems. That is why we should stay on top of the market trends and developments that impact the performance of the finance and risk management function. As an Intern, you will be involved in a variety of internal activities with a focus on providing insights into domain-specific topics by conducting research. Since in recent years the topic of Sustainable Finance (SF) has become prominent, we are growing experience in this field. The SF regulations are currently the center of attention at a lot of our client premises. We are looking for someone to conduct ESG-related research and analysis in the financial services industry.
The goal of this research is two-fold:
To give a better idea of what your sustainability-related research topic will entail, we provide
some examples of relevant research:
Sustainable finance regulations scope the disclosures to EU-based companies, which results in missing data on outside EU investments and economic activities of banks and insurers. At our clients, we observe actions to improve the quality of sustainability disclosures. These include voluntary disclosure of sustainability information on investments and activities. Is there an increasing demand for ESG-related data on financial products? Do Dutch financial industry participants disclose more information on sustainability than the regulation requires? Does it provide a competitive advantage?
Banks, insurance companies and asset managers are facing abundance of new sustainability-related requirements from regulators. To ensure compliance, they must invest in new expertise and data, which comes at a cost. Given the swift implementation of these regulations, there is scarcity of experience of such data disclosure. This slows down the process and ramps up financial costs. What are the largest costs of compliance with sustainability-related regulations? What are the main difficulties for compliance?
We will accommodate you with our expertise as well as our network. We provide you the opportunity to present the outcome of your study to our clients i.e., during one of our Round Table events. While research will be a considerable part of your day, you will also participate in other internal activities and thus gain a feeling of what it is like to work as a starting consultant. You can expect to participate in discussions about ongoing projects, help to fulfill internal and project-related tasks and gain practical knowledge about consultancy through our company’s trainings. Our versatile environment will give you a head start in gaining experience and keeping the job interesting.
