Vilimir has a background in Economics and Mathematics. After an employment as a portfolio manager focusing on large institutional investors, he decided to get further advanced knowledge on postgraduate level. He thinks that such is required with the growth of complication in financial markets. That led to completing studies in Finance and Financial Mathematics. Having the chance to be in academia during the crisis years, provided him an opportunity to do critical research on modern topics both of academic and practical relevance. At the same time, he kept touch with the industry by being associated to a set of innovative industrial projects and real economy consulting activities. 

Vilimir's interests are in the fields of Financial Engineering (Fixed Income, Derivatives, Credit, FX), Global Macro, and Asset Management. He tries to combine quantitative underpinning with financial/economic intuition about the structural drivers for measurable industrial applications in portfolio management, (quant) research and strategy, and trading.
