The Department of Finance is pleased to announce that Professor Mikhail Chernov has won the prestigious NASDAQ OMX Award for Best Paper on Asset Pricing 2012.
He was recognised for his CDS Auctions paper at the Western Finance Association Meeting, which took place in Las Vegas in June. He shares the honour with co-authors Igor Makarov and Alexander Gorbenko of the London Business School. The prize was one of only five awards announced during the four-day annual conference, and was accompanied by a cheque for $5,000.
Professor Chernov’s success reinforces LSE’s reputation for excellence in finance research, following Dr. Dong Lou’s prize-winning paper in the same category last year.
