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 received the silver medal from the University of Copenhagen, as well as several other rewards for his research and dissemination of his research.


I chair the committee specifying return assumptions Danish pension funds must use when making pension projections, I am a non-executive member of the Board of Directors at Copenhagen Business School and at Grandhood (a pension start-up), I am a member of the Systemic Risk Council on the Faroese Islands, and 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 the past, 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 15-20 km. I have decided that a marathon is too long. In addition, I like being in Spain.
