Financial Economist Dr. Albert Metz Joins BRG as Managing Director
BRG announced today that financial economist and econometrician Dr. Albert Metz has joined the firm’s New York office as a managing director in its Antitrust & Competition Policy and Financial Services Litigation & Investigations groups.
Metz is an economic and litigation consulting expert with deep expertise in credit markets, bankruptcies, asset pricing, monopolization, market manipulation, fixed-income securities and various debt derivatives. His experience spans numerous industries with a focus on cryptocurrencies, multisided transaction platforms, insurance, healthcare, telecommunications, real estate and financial institutions. Metz has worked on behalf of the US Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission. He has testified on event study methodologies and market efficiency on behalf of the US Securities and Exchange Commission and defendants in bankruptcy proceedings.
Metz is the latest addition to BRG’s world-leading antitrust and competition practice, following the recent appointments of renowned experts Dr. David S. Evans and Dr. Rosa M. Abrantes-Metz and the September appointment of distinguished antitrust economist Dr. David Sunding.
“Albert is an important addition to our fast-growing antitrust and competition practice, given his modeling work in fixed-income securities and complex debt and equity derivatives,” Sunding said. “His expertise will be incredibly valuable to BRG clients. I look forward to working with him as we continue to grow our antitrust and securities litigation capabilities.”
Commenting on his appointment, Metz said, “It’s an exciting time to join BRG as the firm expands its antitrust and competition practice and securities litigation capabilities. I look forward to contributing to the group’s continued expansion.”
Before becoming a consultant, Metz was the managing director of the Global Methodology Development group at Moody’s Investors Service, with responsibility for developing all credit rating models and methodologies.
