Jeffrey Wurgler

Jeffrey Wurgler is the new Haas
Assistant Professor of Corporate Finance

Jeffrey Wurgler, the newly appointed Robert B. and Candice J. Haas Assistant Professor of Corporate Finance at the Yale School of Management, is noted for his research on how financial markets and financial institutions improve the allocation of capital within the economy.

In addition to corporate finance and capital markets, his other research and teaching interests are asset pricing and behavioral finance -- the study of how limited arbitrage and investor psychology interact to yield patterns in asset returns.

Wurgler's new post is effective through June 30, 2002.

Wurgler came to Yale in 1999 upon earning his Ph.D. in business economics at Harvard University, where he was awarded a Robert Wood Johnson Jr. Fellowship, Harvard Business School Graduate Fellowship and Harvard Business School Thesis Research Grant. He earned his undergraduate degree at Stanford University, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and won the Anna Laura Myers Award for an outstanding economics honors thesis.

This year, Wurgler was presented the Milken Institute Award for Distinguished Economic Research. His articles have appeared in such publications as the Journal of Financial Economics and the Journal
of Finance.

Wurgler has been an invited speaker at events hosted by the National Bureau of Economic Research, Western Finance Association and the National Bureau of Economic Research, as well as by numerous universities. He is a referee for the Journal of Business, Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, Journal of Financial Markets, Quarterly Journal of Economics, and Review of Economics and Statistics. He serves as an adviser to the Los Angeles company Fusionist Technologies.
