Bruegel Visiting Fellow
Peterson Institute for International Economics
Nicolas Véron is a scholar both at Bruegel, which he cofounded in 2002-05, and at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, which he joined in 2009. His research is primarily about financial systems and financial services policy. A graduate of France’s Ecole Polytechnique and Ecole des Mines, he held senior positions in the French government and private sector in the 1990s and early 2000s. He is also an independent board member of the global derivatives trade repository arm of DTCC, a financial infrastructure company that operates on a non-profit basis. He has been a witness at parliamentary hearings in the US Senate, European Parliament, and in several European member states; a financial policy expert for the European Commission and Court of Auditors; and a consultant to the International Monetary Fund and World Bank. In September 2012, Bloomberg Markets included Véron in its yearly global “50 Most Influential” list, with reference to his early advocacy of European banking union.
