Tobias supports companies in corporate finance matters - portfolio optimization, investment decisions, and valuation – and helps them create value.
He achieved his Master’s in Finance & Investments (cum laude) at Erasmus University in Rotterdam and has been working at EY since 2007.
“The prices of companies are extremely high, so buyers rightly wonder how they will ever recoup the cost. You thus need a solid analysis based on facts. In business valuation, you need to understand the company and its market in a short space of time. The challenge is to turn the company’s story into financial forecasts, risks and sensitivities.”
How Tobias is building a better working world
“It isn’t often mentioned, but creativity is an important part of this work. Thinking differently, making new connections. And then combining this with data and corporate finance theory. I really like that. I like getting away from my office, and out to the client. I get even more excited about businesses that are involved in energy transition. As well as economically being the right thing to do, I also feel that we should leave the planet in a better state than we found it.”
