Then we would love to hear your story.
At APG Asset Management you will be part of the Cash & Collateral Management Team within Operations /Investment Operations & Accounting Services.

The Cash & Collateral Management Team consists of 10 professionals with vast experience in this area. The team fulfills a crucial function within Operations, with interaction with all the other teams and departments at APG Asset Management.
As a true professional you always think in terms of opportunities and solutions. You will never lose focus on your goal: reducing counterparty credit risk via Collateral and delivering a timely and correct Cash Forecast to the Front Office. The derivatives are collateralized under e.g. the CSA and GMRA covering bilateral-, centrally cleared- and tri-party transactions. As cash is held at multiple locations and intraday positions are monitored closely, this will be moving to near real time process.

- ad hoc exception handling.
As Cash & Collateral Manager, you know how to approach issues from different angles and ask the right questions. You are someone with a healthy ambition who takes action independently, but you are also a motivated team player. Of course you are representative, possess well developed communication and interpersonal skills and show a lot of initiative. Lifelong learning and continuous education is a normal ambition for you and you have a "can do" mentality (not a 9 to 5 attitude).
