PhD defence: Sven Klingler

In order to obtain the PhD degree, Sven Klingler submitted his thesis entitled: Essays on Asset Pricing with Financial Frictions

 
Friday, June 30, 2017 - 10:30 to 12:00

The common theme of this thesis, which consists of three essays, is the effect of funding frictions on asset prices. The first essay (co-authored with David Lando) shows how financial regulation creates a demand for credit default swap (CDS) contracts on safe sovereigns. The second essay (co-authored with Suresh Sundaresan) provides evidence that underfunded pension plans, which face funding constraints because they are restricted from using direct leverage, have a demand for long-dated interest rate swaps. The third essay uses deviations from the covered interest rate parity (CIP) as a proxy for market-wide funding conditions and shows that hedge funds with higher exposure to that risk underperform funds with lower exposure.
