Rosen Ivanov, M.A., is married and a father of two children. He was born in Bulgaria where he finished summa cum laude a high school with intensive study of English. Subsequently he graduated magna cum laude from the prestigious Master’s program in International Economic Relations of the University for National and World Economy at Sofia, Bulgaria. He has been living in Frankfurt am Main, Germany since 2009.
He has first worked for more than 9 years (the latest three in managerial capacity) at the Bulgarian National Bank on subjects related to securities, payment and settlement systems, regulation, EU integration, statistics, government debt and other central banking topics. He then went on to work for 9 years as a senior expert at the European Central Bank in Frankfurt am Main, Germany on similar issues, but with a particular focus on harmonisation and integration of post-trade services in the European Union in the context of implementing a major European IT project.
He has presented viable solutions to resolving the major macroeconomic challenges of our day on topics related to economic growth, monetary and fiscal policy, inequality and the completion of the European monetary, economic and social union at the European Economic Summit in Amsterdam, 2016, as well as at the First International Conference on Modern Monetary Theory in Kansas City in 2017. He is convinced that many current financial and macroeconomic challenges can be better addressed by taking into account the Biblical perspective. An example of this is a seminar on holistic management of personal finances, which he and his wife have developed based on Biblical insights.
