Ph.D. Student at the CFR receives C-SEB Junior Start-Up Grant
Stefan Jaspersen, Ph.D. student at the CFR, has received a C-SEB Junior Start-Up Grant of the Center for Social and Economic Behavior (C-SEB) for his current project "Homophily in Fund Managers’ Investment Decisions".

In this project, which is joint work with Peter Limbach from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), he investigates how fund managers select stocks based on their similarity to the CEO (e.g., in terms of age, gender, or ethnicity). The authors further analyze whether investments in similar CEOs reflect information advantages and, ultimately, lead to a superior performance.
