Policy and Risk Management

Karen van der Wiel

Karen van der Wiel is head of the Policy and Risk Management division of the DSTA. 

The Policy and Risk Management (PRM) division formulates the policy framework and guidelines for the agency on all topics that are relevant for an efficiently operating DMO. Topics include among others the desirable risk profile of the debt portfolio, credit risk management, issuance and funding strategies and the payment infrastructure.

In addition, PRM legal counsels are involved in analyzing and managing possible legal risks.

An important task for PRM is its responsibility for all external communication. This includes informing investors and the market at large via publications such as the annual Outlook, Quarterly Outlooks, press releases and the website. The Budget on National Debt is the document through which the DSTA is accountable to parliament.
