David Veredas

For more than 10 years David Veredas has developed teaching and research expertise in financial markets and quantitative methods. His knowledge ranges from regulation of financial markets to mathematical finance, which he uses for both teaching and research. Indeed, he has taught extensively in, among others, the University of Paris IX Dauphine, Cass Business School, the Swiss Banking Institute, and the Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management.

He is a founding member of the Society for Financial Econometrics (based at Stern School of Business in New York) and an elected member of the European Shadow Financial Regulatory Committee. Among other research visits, he spent one semester at NYU Stern School of Business, and in 2014 he was the holder of the Bank of Santander Chair of Excellence at University Carlos III of Madrid. David is a usual writer of policy documents and opinion pieces in general public newspapers

David Veredas is the professor of financial markets at Vlerick Business School. He teaches an array of finance-related courses (options, financial institutions and instruments, and statistics among others) at the Masters and the Executive MBA.

Broadly speaking, his research is financial risk -namely volatility, tail and systemic risks- and vast dimensional and complex financial systems. He publishes regularly in international peer-review journals on these topics. He teaches (or he has taught) courses at the University of Paris IX Dauphine, Cass Business School (London), the Duisenberg School of Finance (Amsterdam), the Swiss Banking Institute (Zurich), and the New Economic School (Moscow) among others. Moreover he has trained (or he trains) 12 PhD students and 6 post-docs so far. David holds a BA in Economics, a BA in Statistics from University Carlos III de Madrid, a MA and a PhD in Economics from the Université Catholique de Louvain.
