Arjan van Bussel started his professional career as one of the pioneers of securitisation in the Netherlands. Over time he broadened his scope to include a wide range of financial products, on a pan-European scale. Arjan has delivered deals from origination to execution in securitisation, credit default swaps, interest rate hedging and inflation linked facilities. He is best known for his many commercial real estate transactions and his earlier specialty in residential mortgages. In total, Arjan has raised more than EUR 42 billion in debt financing for his clients.
Arjan joined Bishopsfield Capital Partners in September 2011 from The Royal Bank of Scotland, where he was responsible for European commercial real estate transactions in the structured finance team. From September 2000 to October 2008 Arjan worked at ABN AMRO, initially in Amsterdam as a key member of the bank’s Benelux securitisation team, and then in London as of September 2003, where he began to focus on commercial real estate lending and structured real estate finance transactions.
He began his career in 1998 in the residential mortgage-backed assets division of Dutch bank NIBC.
Arjan graduated with distinction from Maastricht University in 1993. After completing a one-year Japan Studies Program in Tokyo, he returned to Maastricht University to earn his Ph.D. on a dissertation entitled ‘Valuation and interest rate risk of mortgages in the Netherlands’.
