Madelyn Antoncic

Former VP and Treasurer, World Bank


 Madelyn Antoncic, Ph.D. has held leadership and management roles for over 30 years in large, complex global financial institutions in both the private and public sector. 

Ms. Antoncic is a former Vice President and Treasurer of the World Bank (WB) where she was responsible for overseeing every aspect of the management of $145 billion in assets under management for the World Bank, its 2 affiliates, over 700 trust funds, and over 55 other official-sector institutions comprising central banks, national pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, and other international financial institutions, as well as for the $22 billion World Banks Group’s (WBG) retirement benefit plans. 

 Ms. Antoncic has gained a wealth of experience in banking, finance and risk management having begun her career as an Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Following the Fed, she spent 12 years at Goldman Sachs first as global head of market risk management then as Special Assistant to GS’s Co-Vice Chairman/Co-Chief Operating Officers (Robert E. Rubin and Stephen Friedman) and more than seven years trading structured mortgage products. She then had a 2-year stint at Barclays Capital as Americas’ head of market risk and treasurer and 10 years at Lehman Brothers as global head of market risk and five years as the CRO until spring 2007, when she was asked to turn her focus to external issues. In this capacity, she established an externally focused role to connect with key policy makers on issues such as regulation as they impacted not only the Firm but more broadly the markets. After leaving the WB she joined Principal Global Investors (PGI) as Executive Director and Global Head of Official Sector Partnerships responsible for deepening, broadening and building.

She holds a Ph.D. in economics with a minor in finance from The Stern School of New York University, was an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Doctoral Fellow and has taught economics and finance at the Graduate and Undergraduate Schools of Business of The Stern School of New York University. 

She is a frequent university guest lecturer, speaker, panelist and round table participant on topics of financial, systemic and climate-related catastrophic risk; Green finance; infrastructure finance; risk management; governance; markets; financial regulation; the impact of financial markets on the macro economy; and leadership. She has written and published on topics relating to interest rates; financial markets; and risk and is a recognized industry leader and expert on risk management and governance.
