Research interests

After a successful career as an actuary and a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), I am contributing to the actuarial profession through research, university teaching and advising those interested in joining the profession. My research has an international perspective and is designed to produce practical policy recommendations. It is focused on investments, risk management, financial economics, aging, and their implications for the management of social support systems, such as pensions, health care, and long-term care.
