Bruno Gerard

Professor - Institutt for finans

Biografi

Dr. Gerard is primarily interested in empirical asset pricing and portfolio management, both in an international and a single country context as well as in issues of financial market integration and contagion. He has also written on the security issuance process (seasoned equity issues and Treasury auctions), price manipulation as well as corporate asset valuations and spin-offs.

His current research investigates how inflation and interest rate risk affects security returns and inter-temporal asset allocation. His other research projects investigate how industry structure and currency risk affect the returns of domestic and international portfolios, as well as the impact of the adoption of the European single currency on international equity markets and portfolio flows.

Dr. Gerard's research has been published in the Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics and the Journal of Banking and Finance among others, and he is an associate editor of Finance Letters.

In addition to the Norwegian School of Management, he has also taught at the University of Michigan Business School, the Anderson School at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), the Marshall School at the University of Southern California (USC) and at Louisiana State University (LSU). He has consulted on asset allocation and volatility issues with several institutions, including European Central Bank and the Norwegian Central Bank. Prior to his academic career, he practiced commercial, security and banking law as a member of the bar of Brussels, Belgium.

How important is intertemporal risk for asset allocation?

The journal of business, 79(4), s. 2203- 2241.

We test a conditional asset pricing model that includes long-term interest rate risk as a priced factor for four asset classes-large stocks, small stocks, and long-term Treasury and corporate bonds. We find that the interest risk premium is the main component of the risk premiums for bond portfolios, while representing a small fraction of total risk premiums for equities. This suggests that stocks, especially small stocks, are hedges against variations in the investment opportunity set. We estimate that, at average market volatility levels, investors earn annual premiums between 3.6% during expansions and 5.8% during recessions for bearing intertemporal risk alone.
