drs. M.E. Helmantel

Academic Lecturer

My name is Mark Helmantel and I am 47 years old. I have two kids and I am living in Groningen. I studied Finance at the University Groningen, from 1989 until 1995. Then I became an Assistant Professor at our Faculty of Economics. Currently I work here part-time primarily focused on teaching, e.g. Corporate Finance, Corporate Governance, and Derivative Instruments.

The other days, I work at PwC in Amsterdam. I joined their Valuations group (Advisory), in January 2007. First, I was hired to train (junior) consultants on Corporate Valuation and extend their academic thinking. As my specialty and interests lie in derivatives, I also took on specific projects dealing with option like structures. Later, I transferred to the Financial Instruments team where I now work as a Senior Manager.
