Featured Faculty

Veronika Krepely Pool

Department of Finance

Pool’s research interests focus on how personal biases, social interactions and incentives drive the decisions of financial intermediaries—think hedge fund and mutual fund managers, brokers and financial advisors. It’s a hot topic that, she says, “not only has direct welfare implications for investors, but that also determines how efficiently resources are allocated in the economy.” Her recent study on 401(k) providers was also featured in the Wall Street Journal in July 2016.

Lopo Rego

Department of Marketing

The main goals of Rego’s research are to identify generalizable patterns regarding how marketing strategies and actions explain differences in firm performance, and to understand the boundary conditions for these observed patterns. “My research interests lie at the intersection of marketing and finance. How do marketing actions impact a firm’s financial performance and how can firms leverage specific marketing capabilities into superior firm performance?"
