A circle of experts

RSM Finance is part of the Erasmus Finance Group, which includes faculty from the Erasmus School of Economics (ESE) at Erasmus University Rotterdam. "We address a wide variety of areas – research into corporate finance, the predictability of stock returns, asset management, sustainable finance, credit risk, financial innovation, FinTech, entrepreneurial finance and corporate governance, among others," says Professor Verbeek. "Our research focuses on generating new insights that enable people and organisations to thrive. We co-operate with the industry and other stakeholders on topics such as sustainable finance, climate risk and financial regulation, and we share our latest research with each other during our weekly Brown Bag Seminars – it's inspiring to work as a community of finance!" 

Weekly seminars

"The Erasmus Finance Group has an outstanding weekly seminar series that can compete with those from the best business schools in the world," says Professor Verbeek. Such speakers as Jonathan Berk (Stanford), Maureen O’Hara (Cornell), Ulrike Malmendier (University of California Berkeley) and Antoinette Schoar (MIT), present each week to an audience that includes faculty and PhD researchers. 

Annual conferences 

The group also organises highly visible academic conferences each year, including the Professional Asset Management and Erasmus Liquidity series, which feature renowned international keynote speakers. "As a group, RSM Finance is proud of the quality of our research, our programmes, and the renowned finance scholars who like to visit, teach and learn with us," says Professor Verbeek.
