About us

The Dutch State Treasury Agency (DSTA), known in the Netherlands as the Agentschap, is a directorate of the Dutch Ministry of Finance and is based in The Hague. The DSTA finances the Dutch state by efficiently managing the national debt and public money in the treasury, and by setting up the state's payment system. We also advise government-wide on market developments and financial instruments. We do this with integrity, reliability and as effectively as possible, with an eye for relevant risks.

The minister of Finance is responsible for providing a solid and efficient funding of the State's debt. The DSTA fulfills this task for the minister by preparing and defining the funding policy. It represents the State in the closing of transactions on financial markets. The DSTA is also responsible for what is called Treasury Banking (a form of central cash pooling for the State and organizations related to the State) and for the payments system for the State.

This website provides information about the debt and issuance of bonds by the DSTA. It aims to serve a broad range of interested parties such as the general public, banks and investors. The information presented on this website provides as complete a picture as possible of the guidelines and activities related to the issuance of Dutch government debt.

Working at the Dutch State Treasury Agency

The DSTA currently employs more than 60 financial experts in four different departments:

  • Policy and Risk Management
  • Cash Management, Issuance and Trading
  • Treasury and Debt Operations
  • Controlling, Accounting and Reporting

Our organisational structure (see also: the organisational scheme) is similar to that of a financial institution in which front, middle and back office, information management, risk, policy and controlling work closely together. We therefore have many different positions represented in the DSTA. This includes various financial and technical positions such as dealers, analysts and risk managers, but also positions such as communication specialists, project managers, policy officers and product owners. The diversity of disciplines and expertise is what makes working at the DSTA so interesting. A pleasant working culture, where learning from each other is central, is therefore the norm here.

The DSTA's ambition is to be at the forefront of a changing world, achieving the best for society, investors and employees. The Agency invests in becoming a leading organisation that acts transparently and consistently. To fulfil this ambition, we are always looking for new colleagues.
