My research interests are empirical asset pricing, institutional investors, and corporate bonds.

Curriculum Vitae

Working Paper: Do Mutual Funds and ETFs Affect the Commonality in Liquidity of Corporate Bonds?
I document a positive and significant relationship between ETF ownership and liquidity commonality of investment-grade corporate bonds. In contrast, and unlike for equities, mutual fund ownership does not affect co-movement in liquidity of underlying bonds. Three channels explain the differential impact of ETFs and mutual funds: flow-driven trading, different investor clienteles, and ETF arbitrage mechanism.
