In non-litigation consulting, Matt led the overhaul of valuation and risk management capabilities for a GSIB mortgage trading business, developed modeling solutions for regulatory capital management and stress testing, and advised the Swiss National Bank in its acquisition of some $40 billion in structured finance assets for the Stabfund in 2008.
