Who we are

After working for many years at Deloitte and Van Lanschot with great pleasure, Michiel Hopman founded Hopman Data & Risk Solutions at the beginning of 2017. 

Our strategy is a combination of work at VU Amsterdam and assignments in the financial sector. 

Relevant experience and a thorough understanding of data and risk areas guarantee that the question is well understood and thus effective solutions are proposed. Data issues will be addressed –  in collaboration and under joint supervision with Prof. Siem Jan Koopman (VU  Amsterdam) – and carried out by a team of working students from Finance and Econometrics.
