It is with profound sadness that we note the passing of Dr. Jarig van Sinderen in September 2020. Jarig was a valued friend and colleague who will be dearly missed. His family has created an In Memoriam page, where those who knew him are invited to share memories or anecdotes.

In particular, he studies the optimal regulation of state-regulated corporations, including the capital structure and the applications and proper definitions of weighted average cost of capital (WACC).

Dr. van Sinderen is a member of the Erasmus Competition and Regulation institute (ECRi), an informal network of researchers employed at the ESE.
