Dr. Isa Cakir studied mathematics (major subject), physics and astronomy at the University of Zurich, and gained a PhD in the field of stochastic analysis. After his doctorate and post-doc-position, he worked as an expert and manager in the banking and insurance sector. During this time, he collected valuable practical experience in product development, pricing, valuation and risk management and introduced various methodological innovations in these areas. Particularly in risk management, he succeeded in introducing, promoting and implementing various internal modules in the Swiss Solvency Test (SST) for his employer.

He gave lectures related to financial mathematics, risk management, credit risk, macro economy and stochastic models for actuarial and risk management purposes at various institutes and companies. He is a passionate and practice-oriented mathematician with special interests in stochastics, game theory and their applications in social sciences and risk management.
