Finance Faculty

From derivatives and quantitative portfolio management to corporate finance, fixed income and valuation, the finance faculty at Vanderbilt are among the intellectual elite. In addition to being grounded in financial theory, they are deeply connected to the dealings of everyday business. Their research has made a strong impact on the world of finance, from sweeping reforms at NASDAQ to the development of market indexes for the Chicago Board of Trade.
