Amsterdam Investor Forum 2019

G8-plus was fortunate to attend the annual Amsterdam Investor Forum 2019, organized by ABN AMRO Clearing. This most interesting event took place in Amsterdam on 19 and 20 March 2019. Now in its 8th year, the forum welcomed 250+ Institutional investors, fund managers and industry participants to debate and discuss the most important challenges and opportunities facing the industry in 2019.

SCCN participated in interesting discussions about the development of new, complex financial instruments and the formation of subsidiaries of Swiss financial firms in The Netherlands. The result has been that at least one firm is convinced that it needs to establish a Dutch entity in order to expand its network in Europe. It is very well possible that ABN AMRO Clearing will be chosen as its banking partner.

ABN AMRO Clearing is an independent global business partner providing an integrated service package for professional businesses. The pedigree of the firm goes back to the 1980’s, when the first Options Exchange in Europe was started in Amsterdam. Since then ABN AMRO Clearing have grown into a leading global securities services provider. Operating for many years under the “MeesPierson” and “Fortis” brand, the firm rebranded in ABN AMRO Clearing.

Today ABN AMRO Clearing clears and finances over 16 million trades per day and the section covers 90 of the world’s leading exchanges across Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific. ABN AMRO Clearing’s international network provides comprehensive market access to exchange-listed instruments such as stocks, futures and options. It also covers non-exchange listed investment instruments and alternative products including bonds, OTC derivatives, warrants, forex, forwards and energy and commodities derivatives.

ABN AMRO Clearing consistently ranks among the top three clearers in every time zone, based on market share of transactions cleared.

Eventbrite - Blockchain for Entrepreneurs

Blockchain is an undeniably ingenious invention – the brainchild of a person or group of people known by the pseudonym, Satoshi Nakamoto. But since then, it has evolved into something greater, and the main question every single person is asking is: What is Blockchain?

By allowing digital information to be distributed but not copied, blockchain technology created the backbone of a new type of internet. Originally devised for the digital currency, Bitcoin, the tech community is now finding other potential uses for the technology.

Bitcoin has been called “digital gold,” and for a good reason. To date, the total value of the currency is close to $9 billion US. And blockchains can make other types of digital value.

Like the internet (or your car), you don’t need to know how the blockchain works to use it. However, having a basic knowledge of this new technology shows why it’s considered revolutionary. So, we hope you enjoy this event.

Contact G8plus for more details or to meet in person at this event.

Amsterdam Capital Week

Meet us in Amsterdam and make capital connections during the Amsterdam Capital Week

Startups need capital to support their growth. For most founders, bootstrapping a company until its IPO is something they can only dream of. To boost the capital ecosystem in the Netherlands and increase the availability of growth capital for startups,


The City of Amsterdam realised that, to play its part in the European tech ecosystem, it had to invest in the city’s vibrant startup scene. Local government teamed up with the startup community and drafted a plan of action: StartupAmsterdam. This plan was drafted around five pillars: capital, talent, launching customers, content and a more startup-minded environment. StartupAmsterdam is a public/private initiative, with a time-span of four years to fortify the city’s position as leading startup hub in Europe, and increase the international visibility of Amsterdam’s startup ecosystem.

Since the first edition in September 2015, the week has grown into a signature event for Amsterdam’s startup ecosystem.

Event Date
25th September 2017.
Event Location
Amsterdam area.
Event Time
10 AM
Event theme
“The week features high-level events covering capital for the various phases of start-ups and scale-ups.”
