Investments Intern at Lendahand

Function: Investments Intern (fulltime)

Start date: Flexible, but a strong preference for September/October 2019

Duration: 5-6 months

Location: Rotterdam (right next to Central Station), the Netherlands

About us:

Lendahand is a small, fast-growing social fintech company. We run two online impact investing platforms that allow individuals and institutions to create impact in emerging markets while earning a decent financial return on investment.

Through our platforms, people can provide debt funding to non-bank financial institutions, fintechs and solartech companies in over 20 emerging countries such as Uganda, Mozambique, Georgia, Cambodia and Mexico.

We are part of the revolution that is reshaping the banking- and investment management landscape. Lendahand has found product/market fit and is in the scale up phase. Four years ago, we raised €10,000 per month, at the moment that is close to €2,000,000 per month. We expect to continue this steep growth curve, which translates into an expected €35 million in new investments in 2019!

With a European MiFID license (as an investment firm) in the pocket, we have launched a dedicated energy access investment platform in the UK and are about to launch in several other European countries.

The Lendahand team consists of +15 people. Some call themselves the experienced guys, and some team young gods (we leave it up to you to which group you think you belong). Together we form a dynamic and high achieving team that gets things done and is having fun while doing so.

We are part of the B Corp community and a member of NPM, the Dutch platform for inclusive finance.

What we look for:

The Impact Investment Team currently consists of 4 people and is in desperate need of a new team member as the portfolio is increasing rapidly.

What you will do as a member of the Impact Investment Team:

  • Gain in-depth knowledge on investing cross different sectors in emerging markets, such as financial institutions and fin-techs, renewable energy and sustainable agriculture
  • Identify global debt investment opportunities with different risk/return profiles
  • Perform due diligence, write investment memos, participate in the Investment Committee
  • Monitor and manage the investment portfolio
  • Assist investees in executing FX hedging strategies
  • Determine the investment strategy together with the team

Lendahand is a small company, so don’t be surprised if your help is at times needed for corporate/financial strategy, capital raising, marketing (data analysis), etc.

IMPORTANT NOTE: this may lead to a full-time position.

About you:

  • University-level bachelor or master degree in anything (from financial engineering to anthropology)
  • Strong numeric, analytical & problem solving skills
  • Entrepreneurial and ambitious (you won’t survive here otherwise)
  • Comfortable with working under uncertainty (basically ‘organized chaos’)
  • A drive and naivety to want to change the world
  • Fluent in English, while Spanish is a big ventaja
  • Exceptional skills in fussbal and/or ping pong may work for or against you, depending on who you are playing against…


  • Salary: EUR 500 gross p/m
  • Friday = work from home day
  • A cool environment with a steep learning curve
  • Change the world, nothing less
