The General Board of the European Systemic Risk Board has appointed LSE Finance Associate Professor Martin Oehmke as a member of the European Systemic Risk Board Advisory Scientific Committee (ASC) for a four-year renewable term.
The Advisory Scientific Committee (ASC) conducts research to inform macroprudential decisions by the General Board. It consists of 15 experts representing a wide range of skills, experience and expertise.
The ASC contributes to the public debate on macroprudential policy by publishing reports. Past contributions include calls for: credible bank resolution; a European capital markets union; and enhanced disclosure of carbon-intensive assets.
The ASC is responsible for the ESRB Working Paper Series. It also awards the annual Ieke van den Burg Research Prize for young economists.
The Department of Finance is delighted to congratulate Martin Oehmke on this appointment.
