My main position is at Ortec Finance (80%), a leading provider of technology and solutions for risk and return management for institutional investors. At Ortec Finance I am responsible for innovative client projects, main focus on large insurance companies. My specialty is Asset Liability Management I also have a 20% position at the University of Groningen. I am interested in the impact of climate change and transition paths on the global economy in general, and on the assets and liabilities of insurance companies in particular. Long term means

  • a framework to consistently establish long term expected values for 800+ global financial and economic variables
  • so NOT forecasting short or medium term developments, but looking at long term (30-50 years) expected equilibrium levels.
  • On such long horizons, demographic trends and climate change also play a major role.
