Marcel Peeters is Professor of Derivatives Law at the University of Amsterdam. He is not only a lawyer but also an economist. He received his PhD in economics from the University of Cambridge in 1984. He held lectureships in economics, and other academic posts, at various universities before taking his law degree at Leiden University (cum laude, 1994). After switching to the legal profession, he initially focused on Supreme Court litigation (cassatie) and litigation-related advisory work at the law firm Houthoff Buruma. Subsequently, and in particular after his move to NautaDutilh (where he worked until 2012), he specialized in financial law (both private law and regulatory), with an emphasis on derivatives law and capital and liquidity requirements.

He lectures on derivatives, intermediated securities and clearing and settlement as part of the Masters programme. In 2013 he was Visiting Professor at the International Hellenic University of Thessaloniki, where he lectured on financial collateral arrangements and on intermediated securities. During the Fall semester 2014 he was Professor of Law at the Center for Transnational Legal Studies in London, where he taught courses on Transnational Securities Law and on International Economic Law after the Global Financial Crisis.

His research interests include derivatives as instruments of risk allocation, various legal and economic aspects of security interests, and restructuring and resolution of banks and other financial institutions. His research is part of the research programme of the Center for Financial Law of the Amsterdam Center for Law & Economics.

The Chair in Derivatives Law is endowed by the Foundation Securities, Markets and Regulation (Stichting Effecten, Markten en Regulering), with financial support from Euronext.
