Bio:

I am Lead Senior Consultant at Mindwell NL, a consultancy specializing in implementing IT and Risk systems at financial institutions. I hold an MSc in Mathematical Trading and Finance (City University) and a PhD in Quantitative Finance (Imperial College). My research interests are related to Credit Derivative Modeling: when I performed model reviews on CDO products for a large UK bank, I escalated warnings about flaws in the CDO models 6 years before these products became toxic in the credit crisis. I was also able to issue warnings about credit-spread related risk to a large pension fund 3-6 months before the credit markets crashed completely in June 2008 and a quarter of invested funds were lost.

At Mindwell, we are interested in achieving better investment returns through the implementation of state-of-the-art Asset Management, Treasury and Trading systems.

Interests:

Another topic of interest is related to risk management in asset management through the implementation of pro-active risk management techniques and by taking social and climate-related systemic risks into account.
