Ward Rougoor specialises in financial economic research. He has over 5 years of experience with (policy) evaluation research, both in a national and an international context.
Ward has much experience evaluating financial instruments. For instance, he has evaluated Qredits Microfinanciering, Project Financieringslink, and the Garantieregeling Scheepsnieuwbouwfinanciering on behalf of the Ministry of Economic Affairs. In addition to this, Ward spends much of his time conducting evaluation research of joint international development projects. Examples include the evaluations of 2SCALE, the Dutch Good Growth Fund (DGGF), and the Facility for Sustainable Entrepreneurship and Food Security (FDOV).
In addition to evaluation research, Governance is an important research theme for Ward. He was part of the research teams for four recent SEO studies on the Pension Funds Code and compliance of the Corporate Governance Code for stock market listed companies (financial years 2015 and 2016).
Ward possesses a broad range of quantitative and qualitative research methods. He is adept at (meta) regression analyses, cluster analyses and input-output models. Furthermore, he is knowledgeable on WACC and CAPM models and a broad range of valuation issues. He also has experience with social cost-benefit analyses (SCBAs), conducting surveys and (group) interviews, and conducting file analyses and literature research.
Ward has a master’s in International Economics and Globalisation from the University of Utrecht. In his master’s thesis, he modelled the global income inequality during the 21st century. An adapted version of this article was later published in World Development.
