Andert van Gorkum
Advising (medium) large companies and institutions with complex financial and strategic challenges is the common thread in my career. After having worked in various positions at ABN Amro for 10 years, I switched to Deutsche Bank in 2010. There I worked in the Financial Restructuring and Recovery department where I have led financial restructurings on companies in financial stress.
I derive energy from the connection between myself and the entrepreneur and management. That’s why in 2017 I made the switch to the other side of the table. Since then I have been advising shareholders,-managers, companies and institutions and I can represent the interests of clients in the best way possible. My financial and legal background comes in handy here.
In my advice I use a sober, business-like and practical approach. Good communication is of great importance to me. I also make sure that the human aspect is not lost sight of.
With my background and my many years of experience with (re)financing and (re)structuring issues, I can provide you with the best possible service.

In various roles I worked on a number of financial restructurings. Since a few years now I have been doing that as an advisor. With commercial feeling, substantive knowledge and attention for entrepreneurs, I find practical solutions.
