Jules van Binsbergen conducts theoretical and empirical research in finance. His current work focuses on asset pricing, in particular models of the cost of capital, the relationship between financial markets and the macro economy, and the organization, skill and performance of financial intermediaries. Some of his recent research focuses on measuring the skill of mutual fund managers, the term structure of cash flow growth and stock return predictability and the implications of good-specific habit formation for asset prices. Professor van Binsbergen’s research has appeared in leading academic journals, such as the American Economic Review, the Journal of Finance, the Journal of Financial Economics and the Journal of Monetary Economics. He received his PhD from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University. After obtaining his PhD in 2008, he joined the faculty at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, where he got tenure in 2014. He joined the Wharton School in 2014.
