Thom Wetzer
Associate Professor of Law and Finance at UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD


Thom Wetzer is Associate Professor of Law and Finance at the University of Oxford, Director of the Oxford Sustainable Law Programme, and a member of the Oxford-Man Institute of Quantitative Finance. He also acts as a Consultant for De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek.

Thom’s research sits at the interface between law and finance and focuses on prudential policy, financial stability modelling, corporate governance, and climate risk. His work combines traditional legal scholarship with financial, scientific, and empirical analysis, and has been published in leading journals such as Nature, Science, The Journal of Banking and Finance, The Journal of Corporation Law, and the Columbia Business Law Review. He is one of the editors of the Handbook of Financial Stress Testing (Cambridge University Press, 2022). His doctoral work examined the relationships between the legal and financial structure of banking groups, resolvability, and prudential policy.

In addition to his academic work, Thom actively collaborates with and advises governments, central banks, financial institutions, and international institutions – including the Bank of England, the European Central Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the United Nations Environment Programme. In 2022 he was appointed to a two-year term as a member of the European Securities and Markets Authority's Consultative Working Group on Sustainable Finance.

Thom holds a DPhil (Clarendon Scholar) and an MSc in Law and Finance from the University of Oxford, and received both a BA(Hons) in Law and Economics and an LLB in Dutch Law from Utrecht University. Previously, he was a Visiting Scholar at Columbia Law School, Yale University, and Berkeley Law School, and worked at the European Commission and Goldman Sachs.
