Economics consultancy Oxera has strengthened its German team with the addition of Christoph Kaserer. The financial advisory expert joins Oxera’s Berlin office as an Associate.
With offices in the UK (Oxford, London), Belgium and Germany, Oxera is one of the larger consultancies in Europe specialised in economics, litigation, regulation and corporate finance.
Oxera’s German office, based in Berlin, was opened in 2013, following growing demand from local customers and the resulting need to have an on-the-ground presence. Since the opening of the Berlin office, which serves as a hub for the DACH as well as Eastern European region, the practice has under the leadership of Michael Kraus grown in size.
With an eye on increasing demand for its regional services, Oxera has decided to strengthen the Berlin team with Christoph Kaserer, Professor of Finance at the Technische Universität München (TUM) and co-director of the Center for Entrepreneurial and Financial Studies (CEFS). Kaserer is according to Oxera a “renowned expert” in the fields of corporate finance, project and infrastructure finance, financial markets, private equity, and asset management, and will contribute to related engagements in Germany and beyond. “Christoph is a fantastic addition to our network of Associates, who are leading academic and industry experts,” comments Tim Jenkinson, an Oxford-based partner at Oxera.
Head of the Berlin office Michael Kraus adds: “I am pleased to have someone of Christoph’s stature and outstanding reputation joining the Oxera Associate network. His deep experience and broad expertise will greatly support our capabilities in serving our German corporate and institutional clients and the international finance community.”
In a reaction on his new role, Kaserer says he is “honoured to join Oxera” and “looks forward” to supporting the firm’s economic consulting projects. Kaserer has been appointed as an Associate, and joins the likes of among others Marco Becht (Professor of Finance and Economics at Université Libre de Bruxelles; based in Brussels), Bill Bradshaw (Oxford), former UK government Chief Economist Chris Riley (Oxford) and Keith Harris (Oxford).
