He was professional options trader on Amsterdam Exchanges and Euronext. In 1999 he established his own Market Maker company, which was licensed under the supervisory body AFM. This firm became a Member of Euronext Life, and had clearing-contracts with Fortis, KBC bank and Goldman Sachs.

Jerry was project manager for the development of a new oil index. In 2008 Nyenrode Business University embraced the project.

In that capacity he typically travels around, whereby especially Dubai, Houston, Moscow, Lagos (Nigeria), Kuwait, London and Geneva are often visited.
