A Senior Consultant with Oliver Wyman Actuarial, Daniel supports insurers in various quantitative aspects of their risk management such as market risk, actuarial cash flow modeling, and climate financial risk. Daniel holds degrees in Mathematics and Physics from RWTH Aachen und LMU Munich and came to the firm after spending two years at another consultancy with a focus on risk management.
In contrast to his study focus – mathematical quantum mechanics – Daniel really enjoys the applied and results-driven nature of his work. In contrast to usual clichés about physicists and mathematicians, Daniel sees himself as a people person with a keen perception for analytical frameworks – a combination that has served him well in consulting so far.
Being able to apply a wide range of conceptual frameworks to practical problems has always been a core competency of mine. I thrive in interdisciplinary challenges where multiple concepts from different fields of studies have to be applied all at once.
Recently, Daniel became particularly interested in the quantitative modeling of climate risks and has spoken on the topic at various conferences and continued education events.
Another passion of Daniel lies in classical music – much to the discontent of his neighbors, he practices the violin on a regular basis in the hopes of one day being able to play Bach’s famous “Chaconne.”
