In September 2010, he joined the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) as Vice President for Operational Policy. At the EBRD, Mr Fischer is responsible for coordinating the country strategies, development and delivery of the Bank’s policies in various areas as well as maintaining high level relations with EU institutions and governments.
