René de Jonge
A typical example of our office
After studying Economics in Rotterdam, I soon realized that I wanted to consult private individuals and small businesses, preferably with a small team. Only then can I stand out and truly mean something.
Over 15 years ago, I founded this company. I am still happy with this step. Now, it is a beautiful company of which I am very proud. Proud of the team we work with as well as proud of our customers. Our customers are who matter in our company, after all.
What we do remains a true “people business.” Everybody is different and everyone has a different financial situation. I still encounter surprises, which makes my job so much fun.
An individual approach is truly required, I feel: carefully listening to what a customer has to say. What exactly is one’s situation and what are one’s goals and wishes? That is how you have to work. One of my tasks is to ensure that René de Jonge Financieel Adviseurs continues to serve you this way. You are an individual, not a group.
That is why my biggest annoyance is the “generalization” – so to speak – in the financial services. Banks and insurers want to serve large groups of customers and come up with all sorts of concepts to this end. It is great to use the internet as a source of information and efficiency but you can only accomplish the right mortgage with customization. Only then do you achieve the best result; that is where the benefits lie for the customer. This is proven every single time. Fortunately, our customers feel the same way.
