David is employed as a Ph.d. fellow at the Center for Corporate Governance at Copenhagen Business School. He holds a Master's degree in Finance and Strategic Management from CBS.
David's research focuses on corporate governance – in particular on ownership. In his view, understanding ownership is integral to understanding the corporate entity.
The main type of ownership he is interested in is foundation ownership, as it offers an ideal testing ground for examining the consequences of governance by purpose.
Using econometric modeling on annual reports and financial statements of publicly listed companies, he investigates the relation between ownership identity and economic, social, and environmental performance.
