Triodos Bank knowledge in a Zanders model
Until recently, Triodos Bank primarily used qualitative analysis based on years of practical experience to manage risks in savings.

Together with Zanders, the bank therefore developed a new model that remained in line with the original knowledge and experience but also provided substantiation based on quantitative analysis.
