Your impact as Fund Controller Oversight at NN
Although we have outsourced our Transfer agent and Fund accounting activities we must perform oversight to ensure processes are performed as described. This is a daily process. In case there are unclarities the service provider will reach out to us. Due to the daily flows and cut-off times these queries often require very swift action. This entails quickly getting the right people aligned to come up with the correct instruction or solution. Our actions have an immediate effect on our shareholders.
Next to that we provide extensive liquidity, holding and shareholder information to multiple internal stakeholders.

  • High degree of analytical skills and eye for detail:
    • Ability to quickly identify and measure risk
    • Ability to spot trends
    • Ability to make clear distinction between essentials and side issues

  • Persistent and ability to find multiple routes to achieve a goal
