What is the job about?

You will assist the team to further expand the Secured Inventory Products (SIP) Icestar product which we offer to a broad range of (commodity) clients. Basically, this involves the bank taking ownership of the physical goods, whilst simultaneously setting up an “exit route”, i.e. an opportunity to dispose of ownership (exchange or client). You will be part of the day-to-day activities. These activities are amongst others: prepare client pitches, preparing proposals/management information and marketing presentations, client calls (worldwide; following the Commodity clients), cooperating with the commodity brokers of ABN AMRO, assisting in further developing SIP-Icestar (a/o back office system, policy papers, streamlining processes, yearly review, execution of business plan) and analysing markets.

You will be part of the Commodities Clients Icestar department based in Amsterdam. The Amsterdam desk consists of a 3 FTE front office. Furthermore we assist our Asia (Singapore) and (north) America (New York) desk. Together with the middle-office (C&CM), legal and ABN AMRO Brokerage, the front office team is working on the day-to-day operations for Icestar.

Who are we?

The Commodities Clients department finances the physical flow of commodities, from the pre-production stage through to storage, primary processing and distribution. Our customers are producers, international traders, suppliers, primary processors, transporters and buyers active in the agriculture, metal and energy sectors. ABN AMRO is one of the leading banks within commodity trade finance. It has offices in Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Singapore, Hong Kong, New York, Dubai and Sao Paulo.

Working at ABN AMRO means becoming even better at what you do. We understand clients, translate their ambitions into joint success and thus earn their trust. We want our clients to understand our products. It's why we sometimes say 'no' if the risk attached to a product is too great for the client. Serving the client's interests is also a question of offering – and communicating – a transparent range of products. Banking is our business, the world is our challenge.
