As an academic teacher, a trainer of supervisors, and as an author of an economic handbook, I developed the ability to:

  • explain financial intermediation theories, especially the impact of information asymmetries and incentives in financial relationships;
  • create and increase awareness of the origins of financial intermediation, its added value, in modern societies;
  • draft clear arguments that appeal to the relevant audience;
  • explain complex issues in a clear way;
  • explain what financial legislation is meant to do;
  • inspire various audiences to think beyond the first impression when dealing with finance.

DNB Academy

As a trainer of many banking and insurance supervisors, in Amsterdam but also in Frankfurt, Basel, Berlin and Washington, I got the opportunity to empower colleagues with exercises on how to apply legislative tools, to be aware of unintentional blindness, and how to develop cooperative relationships across sectors and across countries when trust still needs to grow.

Eramus Universiteit Rotterdam

The Erasmus School of Law hosts the faculty of Financial Law, aimed at educating students in financial legislation at European and national level. As member of a team of over 20 academic teachers, I contribute with my specific expertise in the area of large complex financial institutions. I also enjoy guiding many master students investigating relevant legal issues thoroughly for their master-thesis. For more information see http://www.esl.eur.nl/home/llm_programmes/

  • Research into financial intermediation theory and publishing;
  • Publishing my PhD thesis, Banking and industry finance in the 19th century

Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

At the Economics faculty of the VUA in the early nineties, I was teaching corporate finance in all academic years, i.e. 50-200 students' classes for the introduction to corporate finance in the first year, working groups for the main subject in second and third years, and individual thesis guidance in the final study year, as well as publishing in popular journals
