Dr Philippe J.S. De Brouwer

Dr Philippe J.S. De Brouwer

Honorary consul for Belgium in Krakow and professor at the University of Warsaw, Jagiellonian University and AGH University of Science and Technology.

Dr. Philippe De Brouwer leads expert teams in the service center of HSBC in Krakow, is honorary consul for Belgium in Krakow and is also a professor at the University of Warsaw, Jagiellonian University and AGH University of Science and Technology.

He studied theoretical physics and later acquired his second Master degree while working full time. Finishing this Master he solved the "fallacy of large numbers puzzle" that was formulated by P.A. Samuelson 38 years before and remained unsolved since then. In his Ph.D. he successfully challenged the assumptions of the noble prize winning theory of Mean-Variance of Markovitz, by creating "Maslowian Portfolio Theory"

His career brought him into insurance, banking, investment management and back to banking, while his specialization shifted from IT, data science to people management.

For Fortis (now BNP) he created one of the first capital guaranteed funds and got promoted to director in 2000. In 2002 he joined KBC, where he merged 4 companies into one and subsequently became CEO of the merged entity in 2005. Under his direction, the company climbed from number 11 to number 5 on the market while the number of competitors increased by 50%. In the aftermath of the crisis, he helped create a new asset manager for KBC in Ireland that soon accommodated the management of ca. 1000 investment funds and had about 32 Bln Euro under management. In 2012 he widened his scope by joining Risk Management and specialized in statistics and numerical methods. Later Philippe worked for the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and specialized in Big Data, analytics and people management. In 2016 he joined HSBC, created a Centre of Excellence in Risk management in their service center in Krakow. That team controls all most important models used in the bank worldwide.

In his free time, he teaches at AGH University of Science and Technology, Jagiellonian University in Krakow and the Warsaw University. He taught many subjects like finance, behavioral economics, decision making, Big Data, bank management, structured finance, corporate banking, financial markets, financial instruments, team-building and leadership. But what stands out is his data and analytics course.
