Established 1980


The Company was established in 1980 as a grain elevator in the port of Rotterdam, and adopted the name of the port, on the side of the river Maas, where it was later relocated: Maashaven.

The Company, then still part of a global international grain and oilseed merchant, has a long history in agricultural commodities and started to diversify its activities as from 2000.


Maashaven manages three operational activities:

Our Core Investments are focused on Private Equity, Structured Finance and Venture Capital;

The Proprietary Trading desk trades a wide spectrum of commodities, financial securities, derivatives and currencies;

A Systematic Start-Up initiative creates quantitative investment strategies based on mathematical and statistical methodology.



The Company is an active partner in several companies, and provides advisory services to others. With over 30 years experience in operational and financial ventures, Maashaven structures investments, provides alternative financial facilities, and creates operational support to uncover enterprise value by identifying opportunities and promoting personal talents.

Maashaven acts as an active shareholder or advisor in a portfolio of companies, playing an active role in strategic orientation and operational developments, with focus on sustainable performance. The areas of investments include a.o. food & agri, logistics, and technology driven ventures.


Proprietary Trading

The desk is an independent proprietary trader with a focus on global opportunities to generate consistent higher alpha returns.

Maashaven manages a closed end pool of assets from its registered office in the Netherlands and trades a wide spectrum of securities, derivatives and currencies in selected global markets.

The desk deploys opportunistic long/short trading, with clear investment rules and stringent risk management, to deliver consistent capital returns in bullish and bearish markets.


Systematic Initiative

This spin off venture is creating in-house investment strategies based on strict mathematical and statistical methodology.

The Start Up is developing a combination of quantitative and qualitative tools and aims to identify statistical market movements through testing, and validation processes, with relative low correlation to market and macroeconomic variables.
