Morad Elsaify

About Me:

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Finance at the Fuqua School of Business, Duke University. My research focuses on the behavior of financial intermediaries. Specifically, I am interested in understanding the dimensions along which financial intermediaries differ and the impact these differences have on market outcomes and asset prices.

Prior to beginning my Ph.D. in 2016, I received my B.A. in Economics from the University of Chicago in 2015 and was a Research Fellow at Stanford Graduate School of Business.

I am on the 2020/21 job market and will be available for interviews at the 2021 ASSA Virtual Meetings.

Research Interests:

Asset pricing, institutional finance, machine learning, fintech
