Advantage Netherlands for International Finance

14 May 2020

Located right in the heart of Europe, the Netherlands, which came to dominate global capital markets and commerce in the 17th and 18th centuries, remains to this day a highly favoured jurisdiction for corporate domicile and international finance transactions.

From the introduction of the first real stock exchange in 1602 to its powerful merchant banks of the 1750s, the Netherlands is more recognised today for its strong regulatory framework, solid legal system and the political and financial stability that comes from being a key member of the European Union and one of only 11 countries worldwide with a Triple-A rating.
