The employees of New Amsterdam, its contract consultants, and its affiliates are bound to the customer’s best interests and are required to notify New Amsterdam of any possible or potential conflict of interest which may result from their other activities, and may commence such other activities only after the prior, written approval of New Amsterdam, which may not be unreasonably withheld.

Risk
Important: all investments contain an element of risk, and no investor should decide to commit funds without first consulting with a competent professional adviser. The past performance of any investment, investment strategy or investment style is not indicative of future performance. Future results may vary, and are not guaranteed. The value of investments and their income may increase or decrease, and a loss of principal – including all principal – may occur.

Private Placements
New Amsterdam is a private placement broker, regulated by the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM). We are registered as an investment firm and are licensed to ‘Receive and transmit orders’ (license 14004963). Our firm does not hold securities; all accounts and assets are held by our clients or their qualified custodians.

A private placement is the sale of registered or unregistered securities to eligible counterparties, a limited number of qualified private investors, including institutional investors, professional investors, and entities that meet specific investor eligibility requirements.

Securities purchased through private placements typically fall into the category of alternative assets – investments that often have a low correlation to public markets and offer essential diversification to portfolios dominated by traditional stocks and bonds. However, private placements generally are highly illiquid, and are not subject to public disclosure obligations. Investors should consult professional advisers, perform deep due diligence, and engage in careful deliberation before investing.

Qualified Investors
Investing in private placements requires high risk tolerance, low liquidity concerns, and long-term commitment. Investors must be able to afford to lose their entire investment. For those reasons, these offerings may be made available only to eligible counterparties and certain institutional/professional investors. As with all alternative investments, investors must meet certain eligibility tests to qualify as purchasers. Currently, entities must have assets of at least USD 100 million.

Remuneration policy
New Amsterdam has a measured remuneration policy in accordance with the ‘Act on the Remuneration of Financial Undertakings’ of The Netherlands. The remuneration policy is based on the following objectives and principles:

  • New Amsterdam is committed to a policy that is controlled and has no excesses or unwanted stimuli. It should be simple in design and radiate simplicity.
  • The remuneration policy should promote the integrity and soundness of New Amsterdam with a focus on its long-term interests.
  • The remuneration policy is attractive for attracting and retaining talent in the labor market.
  • There must be fair internal pay ratios.
  • The remuneration policy allows for variable remuneration, insofar as it is permitted under applicable legislation.
  • The remuneration policy applies to all employees, including managers, freelancers and temporary workers.
