We mourn for Dr. h. c. Helmut O. Maucher

The FIAS foundation board member passed away on 5 March 2018 at the age of 90.

Born in 1927, the former General Director of Nestlé and holder of the Federal Cross of Merit, he has been committed for years to science and FIAS in particular. Since the founding days of FIAS, he has been a member of the Presidium of the Board of Trustees and was its first chairman. Helmut Maucher has accompanied and shaped the development of our institute with prudence and an eye for the essentials.

With his endowed professorship for "Systemic Risks" at Goehte University, a gap between the theoretical natural sciences and the financial world was closed. Through this generous donation, the FIAS was able to establish a new research area.

We will miss Helmut Maucher very much and remember him with joy and in gratitude.
