On May 9, 1999 the study association FST was founded. Almost 20 years later the renamed association, Asset | Accounting & Finance is flourishing like never before. With around 100 active members A&F sets sail to become even greater. To achieve this, Asset | Accounting & Finance will celebrate its fourth lustrum in the spring of 2019 with great activities.
The fourth lustrum of A&F demands a fitting theme. Therefore, the theme Gold Rush was chosen, also known as gold fever. Evidently A&F has an abundant history, well known for the extensive treasure the ‘Zilvervloot’ holds, which is overflown with gold. Gold Rush is a period in history notorious for the never ending hunger for gold and wealth. This movement mirrors our study association like no other. Where we earn our gold at day time as accountants and stock exchange devotees, at night we are always looking for the liquid gold. Gold fever arises when one supposes they can become wealthy in an instance. Capital gains are the perfect example featuring our market speculators. This ‘Zilvervloot’ mentality enabled us to leave our golden imprint at Tilburg University and others have looked up to our ever expanding association. Together with you and the ‘Zilvervloot’ of A&F, we want to celebrate this memorable anniversary and sail further on our quest to eternal gold.
