Maximilian Bredendiek

Ori­gin­ally from Essen, Ger­many, Max­imilian earned his bach­elor's de­gree in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion at the Hum­boldt-Uni­versity of Ber­lin in 2011. He got his mas­ter's de­gree in Bank­ing and Fin­ance at the Uni­versity of St. Gal­len in Switzer­land in 2013 and star­ted his PhD stud­ies in 2014 at the Vi­enna Gradu­ate School of Fin­ance. In his mas­ter's thesis, he es­tim­ates the cor­rel­a­tions between com­mod­it­ies and tra­di­tional fin­an­cial as­sets us­ing a DCC-G­ARCH model. He shows how the cor­rel­a­tions in­creased dra­mat­ic­ally dur­ing the 2007 fin­an­cial crisis and stayed high dur­ing the sub­sequent period. Max­imili­ans main re­search in­terests are in the field of mar­ket mi­cro­struc­ture, risk man­age­ment and com­mod­it­ies. Next to his pro­fes­sional in­terests, Max­imilian is in­ter­ested in the hu­man­it­ies, espe­cially in lit­er­at­ure and philo­sophy. He fol­lows cur­rent polit­ical and so­cial de­bates and likes read­ing clas­sic and con­tem­por­ary lit­er­at­ure as well as trav­el­ing and ski­ing.
