“My wife and I ran the New York Marathon during our honeymoon and last year, we completed a half iron man race in New Zealand. Our motto is to live a happy and healthy life by creating awesome experiences and memories.”

Barend’s passion for life extends into his role as the Head of the Energy Commodities where his team is responsible for providing funding to his clients who trade energy commodities, namely oil and gas, in key Asian markets including China, Malaysia, and Myanmar. When asked about the most challenging aspect of his job, Barend says it’s analysing how global events, such as elections and regulatory changes, would affect the market and ultimately, his clients.

Reflecting on his career so far, Barend says that he’s a firm believer in visualising your long-term goals and receiving support from people who believe in you along the way. “I’m thankful for the opportunity and support that’s brought me to where I am in my career today. It’s been a rewarding experience where I get to work with a diverse group of interesting people from around the world.”

Outside of the office, Barend is passionate about coaching young people to help them discover their passion and strengths. He finds it especially rewarding when his past interns reconnect with him either about their new job or even to attend their weddings. “I’ve just been invited by a past intern to be a judge at an innovation competition at a local university and I’m excited to see what ideas and ambitions the students will show.”
