Clemens Wagner

Clemens gradu­ated cum laude from the mas­ter's pro­gram in Fin­ance and Ac­count­ing at WU Vi­enna, where he had also earned his bach­elor's de­gree in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion earlier. With his bach­elor's thesis ana­lys­ing Quant­it­at­ive Eas­ing pro­grams of the Fed, the ECB and the BoE dur­ing the Fin­an­cial Crisis, and his mas­ter's thesis about banks' rat­ings of sov­er­eign bond port­fo­lios, he deepened his un­der­stand­ing of the bank­ing sector, its mac­roe­co­nomic role and po­ten­tial sys­temic risks stem­ming from it. His re­search in­terests also in­clude cor­por­ate fin­ance (cap­ital struc­ture, ma­tur­ity choice, pay­out policy), cor­por­ate gov­ernance and the im­pact of ETFs on mar­ket ef­fi­ciency. In his spare time he likes to read, DJ and play foot­ball or snooker.
