Amicitia, we build Friendships. Facultas, we create Wealth. Confidentia, we earn Trust.

Nyenrodiaanse Handelsvereniging De Zilveren Rijder (DZR, in short) is a private student-managed investment fund that was founded in 1996 by two Nyenrodians (students at Nyenrode Business University) with the aim to increase theirs and their peers’ knowledge of the financial markets and investing in general. 

Currently, De Zilveren Rijder is the largest student-managed investment fund in the Netherlands and one of the largest in Europe, managing a total of €170,000 AUM for 800+ shareholders.

Friendship, Wealth, Trust

Friendship has to do with the bonding that is created amongst the Nyenrode students while running the investment fund. Wealth implies that after all the hard work that students put into the fund – involving fundamental analysis of stocks, portfolio management and event arrangements with multiple external parties – eventually yields substantial dividends both materially and in our professional career later on. Since the management has to deal with money, trust is vital to earn a strong reputation amongst peers and fund investors. As a result, De Zilveren Rijder is joined by more than 800 shareholders.

The Board

The current fund structure includes the Board members and Equity Analysts. The board members are in charge of external communications with investors (Chief Executive Officer), designing and maintaining the investment strategy of the fund, and managing analysts (Chief Investment Officer), maintaining internal operations and files in order (Secretary), monitoring of portfolio and fund bookkeeping (Chief Financial Officer), organising educational and career events (Chief Events Officer), communication with the shareholders through the quarterly magazine Den Silvervloot (Chief Fiduciary Officer), and leading the team of analysts (Head of Equity Analysts).

Equity Analysts

The analyst team is of utmost importance in managing the investment portfolio. Selected by the board, the analysts are key in providing research and insights. The analysts deliver their findings via reports and presentations on a monthly basis. Together with the board, constructive discussions are held on the current positions of the fund and the current status of the strategy.

About Us

The primary goal of the fund is to create a learning environment for students willing to learn about investing. This is done by means of arranging public events with guest speakers, as well as enabling the board members to steer the investment strategy of the fund. The fund has been known for consistently outperforming the AEX while attracting investors’ capital up to €170,000+, thus becoming the largest student-run investment fund in the Netherlands. Finally, the fund arranges various events such as the Finance Day, the Investment Day, and Traders’ Trophy, and opens the Amsterdam Stock Exchange every year.

The fund has the ambition to keep its position as the largest student-managed investment fund in the Netherlands, and because of that, it raises funding on a consistent basis. Furthermore, the fund has the ambition of becoming the largest student-managed fund in Europe, and over the long-run, in the world.
