Kim Peijnenburg who joined EDHEC Business School in September 2018 as Professor of Finance has recently published three papers in leading journals, the Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis (October 2018), Review of Financial Studies (forthcoming), co-authored with Gianpaolo Parise (EDHEC), and the Journal of Financial Economics (forthcoming) co-authored with Alexander Eisele, Tamara Nefedova and Gianpaolo Parise .
Her latest publication in the Journal of Financial Economics explores the impact of ambiguity aversion on portfolio choice using a household survey. Kim and her co-authors find that cross-trades are used either to opportunistically reallocate performance among trading funds or to reduce transaction costs for both counterparties.
