About me


I am a Professor of Finance at Copenhagen Business School (CBS).


The unifying theme in my research is the relation between financial markets and the wider economy. More specifically, I have studied asset price predictability using macroeconomic variables, financial crises, international finance, mutual funds, household finance, and other exiting topics.


I have published the results of my research in the leading international academic journals in finance such as the Journal of Financial Economics, Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, Review of Finance, Management Science, Journal of Money, Credit, and Banking, and Journal of International Economics. I have received the silver medal from the University of Copenhagen, and other rewards for my research and dissemination.


In my book, From Main Street to Wall Street, I examine the relation between the macroeconomy and financial markets. 


I chair the Council for Return Expectations, I am a member of the Board of Directors at Finansiel Stabilitet (the Danish Financial Resolution Authority), Advantage Investment Partners, Copenhagen Business School, and Grandhood, I am a member of the Advisory Board (Investments) of Forenet Kredit. I am the Associate Dean and responsible for the CBS Executive MBA. I co-direct the Pension Research Center at CBS (PeRCent).


In 2012-2013, I chaired the government-appointed committee that investigated the causes and consequences of the financial crisis in Denmark. In Denmark, the report is referred to as the “Rangvid-report”.


I am often cited and used as an expert on economic and financial issues in the Danish media. I enjoy giving talks in the financial community.


In my spare time, I like to go for a run; my favorite distance is 15-25 km. I have decided that a marathon is too long. In addition, I like being in Spain.
