Profile: Elwin’s focus areas are the Eurozone and money markets. His drive comes from a fascination for what makes financial markets tick. And what is better than having a job in which you practice your hobby?
Elwin has almost twenty years of experience in economic research and regularly speaks with the (inter)national press, on television and for (large) clients of Rabobank. He has even experienced rising interest rates! Elwin is one of the Netherlands’ most well-known ‘ECB Watchers’ and brings to stage a large amount of experience, both in terms of economics and in terms of communication skills. Making complex matter understandable for a broad audience is one of his strengths. A lecture is only successful if clients feel that their perspective on the world has changed and that their voice has been heard.
