United’s Amsterdam office

Amsterdam’s financial district is home not only to United Holding, but also to one of United’s key operational units, located in the World Trade Centre and servicing sizeable assets. Our dedicated, experienced and multi-lingual team of some 25 staff operates directly from within the local financial community. We know the ins and outs of the jurisdiction and the wide variety of legal structures available. Our experts have built trust with the Dutch central bank (DNB). The focus areas of this unit are stock-listed multinationals, private equity, real estate and ultra-high net worth individuals.

As a privately held, client relationship-orientated firm, United continues to attract new clients looking for a local partner in the Netherlands with highly qualified, international staff, rather than a service provider with a large network of global offices.

United’s Amsterdam office offers our full range of corporate, investment industry and private wealth services, working seamlessly with any local service providers needed to create and monitor your tailored solution.
