Research

My research area is corporate finance with a special emphasis on corporate risk management. My current research investigates how and why firms use financial derivatives, and whether such derivative strategies increase firm value. An important part of my research agenda is how risk management is related to the capital structure of the firm. My research in risk management furthermore extends into the question of how to organize the risk management function in light of recent theories of integrated risk management (enterprise risk management). I also do research on the composition of firms' shareholder base (ownership structure) and its implications for e.g. stock return volatility and voluntary disclosure of information. My research has been published in internationally recognized journals like Financial Management, Journal of Banking and Finance, European Financial Management, and Journal of Business, Finance & Accounting. I have also published extensively in journals that seek to bridge the gap between theory and practice, such as the Journal of Applied Corporate Finance.
