Creative entrepreneurs, pleasant contact

With a combined total of around 80 years of experience in financial services, and a register rich in success and glowing recommendations, values like ‘professionalism’, ‘high quality’, and ‘efficiency’ come natural to DUTCH CF. But we feel that important events, like mergers or take-overs, or a management buy-in or major directional change with financial consequences, call for more.

Such a highly charged process, which imposes huge demands on your entrepreneurial skills, is made easier with the support of someone who has a personal understanding of what it is to do business. Someone who can offer a fresh take and a discerning, smart, and creative voice. Someone pleasant to help you get matters sorted.


I have been active in the financial sector for more than 15 years. I have gained national and international experience at Rabobank International, ABN-AMRO, PWC Shanghai and Staalbankiers. During my career, I continued to develop myself with various degree programs, such as Master Financial Law and Master Business Valuation, because I am eager to learn. Given my background and experience, I am best described as a private and corporate finance specialist. I have an entrepreneurial and creative approach in the process.

Outside my work I have a passion for food and travel and I like to spend time with my family. I am married and have three children.

My motto: ‘Or we find a way, or we make one’.


I have been working for more than 10 years as an advisor for Management Buy-In’s (MBIs) and sales of companies.
I draw a lot of knowledge and inspiration from my own entrepreneurship and from the hundreds of conversations I have had over the years with business owners on their way to successful entrepreneurship. I am genuinely interested in people and in their motives and ambitions. I regularly hear from clients that they are completely comfortable with me next to them in the exciting and complex process of buying or selling.

In addition to services, sport is the main theme in my life. For 40 years I have played soccer at the Royal HFC and off-season I like to cycle. Occasionally my beacons have to be moved and I take on a special sporting challenge. I am married and have a daughter.

My motto: ‘Can not, does not exist. Where there is a will, there is a way.’


IP rich companies intrigue me. My specialty is valuing intellectual property rights in the context of equity or asset transactions and financing.

For almost 15 years I was active in the commercialization and financing of intellectual property rights. So I have closed numerous IP transactions and licenses at home and abroad. My broad international network consists of investors, entrepreneurs, knowledge institutions and domain experts in many shapes and sizes. I stand next to the client to go through a process together. Clear and honest.

I like British humour. My wife is from North Yorkshire (UK) and together we have a daughter.

My motto: ‘Listen, think and achieve together.’

Alex van Aalst MSc MBA FA

My current expertise is based on more than 40 years of experience in business. Besides a solid foundation in business economics, I have in-depth knowledge of financial management and taxation. Thanks to my practical experience and supported by my broad theoretical base (Master in Finance, Master of Business Valuation and Master in Business Administration and the Tax Advisor programme), I can quickly grasp the essence of complex cases and offer clients high-quality advice.

After having laid a financial-economic foundation in accountancy, I worked in the automotive industry for almost 30 years. Both as an entrepreneur and CFO at Chevrolet and Daewoo Motors Benelux, part of General Motors Company. In addition to being an associate partner at DUTCH-CF, I am also involved in the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences as a lecturer in Automotive Business, Business Administration and Tax Law.

The scarce free time that remains for me I like to spend with my family and two dogs.

After gaining various experiences within the financial services industry, including at ABN AMRO MeesPierson in the Private Banking and Investment divsion, I made the switch to the corporate finance world and have been involved – with great pleasure – at DUTCH Corporate Finance as a Junior Associate for over one and a half years now. Within this organization I get the opportunity to develop myself quickly, I am involved in many different projects, I get a lot of responsibility and I work together within a great team.

Entrepreneurship is not unknown to me, as I grew up in an entrepreneurial family. As a result, this has always fascinated me. Besides my general interest in entrepreneurship, I have developed a strong interest and passion for startups with great ideas, the latest technologies and innovations and ambitious entrepreneurs who strive for excellence and extraordinary things.

In addition to my work, I like to exercise a lot, read a wide range of books or have a nice evening with friends. I also love good food and traveling to the most beautiful countries.

My motto: “Go for it, give 200% and you will always find a way to win”.
