Faculty Profile

Costas Xiouros

Associate Professor - Department of Finance


The core of my research interests is in the area of asset pricing. Specifically, I investigate what determines the expected returns of assets and what drives asset price fluctuations. I mostly work with theoretical models of general equilibrium, with and without production, and in several of my investigations I examine the impact of investor heterogeneity on asset prices as well as trading.
