I am a professor of financial markets and institutions at Bocconi University, where I deal with investments, insurance, and pension funds topics. I have been Visiting Professor at the Politecnico Milano, the MIB Trieste School of Management and the CEA (now Insurance Europe) Insurance Training Task Force. Recently I’ve been appointed scientific partner of the Osservatorio sul Welfare by the Luiss Business School.
Thanks to a research work on how to define the investment strategy for retirement savings, I won (with F. Saita) the Research Incentives Award established by Bocconi University. Alongside my courses at Bocconi University, I designed and implemented several executive courses and programs for global leading financial institutions, delivered as a member of the SDA Bocconi School of Management’s faculty.
My research interests include insurance companies, pension funds, asset management, strategic asset allocation, portfolio construction, ALM, capital allocation, risk management, corporate governance, and regulation.
Throughout my career, I have had the chance to enhance the understanding of my research interests by holding several related professional roles such as chairman, independent board member, and advisor to global asset managers, investment banks, top-tier insurance companies, pension funds, consulting firms, IT companies, and family offices.
Moreover, thanks to an academic leave, I gained the corporate perspective by leading both the Italy Institutional Client Business and the Italy Financial Institutions Group as a full-time managing director at BlackRock.
Inter alia, I have been a member of the EIOPA Occupational Pensions Stakeholder Group, a participant in the International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction of the United Nations project, a scientific partner of the B20 Italy 2021, and a referee for the ESMA Working Paper Series.
