Kristóf Reizinger earned his Bachelor’s degree in Economic-Financial Mathematical Analysis, specializing in Financial-Mathematics at the Corvinus University of Budapest. His BSc thesis focused on the lending of commercial banks and compared the banks’ role as financial intermediators with money creation. He continued his studies at the joint Actuarial and Financial Mathematics MSc of the Eötvös Lóránd University and the Corvinus University of Budapest with a major in Actuarial studies. During the master’s program, Kristóf joined the Empirical Finance Research group and studied the interconnectedness of financial networks and their impact on systemic stability. His research was awarded the first prize at the National Scientific Student Association Conference.
He also worked as a Teaching Assistant at the Statistics Department of the Corvinus University of Budapest. Kristóf also holds an MA in Economics from the Central European University in Vienna, where he was a CEU MicroData research group member, applying econometric and machine-learning methods to procurement data. He taught econometrics to undergraduate students and participated in econometric research by designing and implementing econometric simulations. His master’s thesis revealed that financial companies with Russian exposure had an “excess” systemic risk compared to firms operating outside Russia.
In his spare time, Kristóf enjoys hiking, running, and cooking. His latest passion is baking sourdough bread and identifying and collecting mushrooms.
