Theoretical Corporate Finance, Contract Theory, Game Theory, Asset Pricing

Nikolay, ori­gin­ally from Sofia, Bul­garia, re­ceived his B.A. from Mac­alester Col­lege and his M.B.A. from the Yale School of Man­age­ment. At Yale he fo­cused on fin­ance-re­lated top­ics in­clud­ing cor­por­ate fin­ance, cap­ital mar­kets, and fin­an­cial en­gin­eer­ing. Fur­ther­more, Nikolay is a CFA Charter­holder. 

Prior to join­ing VGSF he amassed over five years of prac­tical fin­ance ex­per­i­ence. In the time between his bach­elor’s and mas­ter’s stud­ies, Nikolay worked as an ana­lyst at Bank of Amer­ica. There he was in­volved in cross-bor­der struc­tured fin­ance trans­ac­tions. Most re­cently, Nikolay was em­ployed by the Bo­ston Con­sult­ing Group where he spe­cial­ized in fin­ance top­ics and was a mem­ber of the European Cor­por­ate Fin­ance Task Force.

Nikolay’s re­search in­terests lie primar­ily in game the­ory, as­set man­age­ment, and cor­por­ate fin­ance.

In his spare time he likes to play chess and bas­ket­ball and is an act­ive mem­ber of both the Yale Club of Aus­tria and the CFA So­ci­ety Aus­tria.
