As part of the research team, Nicole is responsible for asset allocation models, equity factor research, and product proposal preparation. She joined the firm in July 2018.
Nicole earned her Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin. Her research focuses on investor behavioral bias and the implications for asset prices. Out of occupational hazard, she habitually looks for public but less salient signals such as firm product similarity and delayed earnings announcements and examines whether limited attention prevents investors from acting promptly upon them. Prior to coming to the States, she received her Master’s in Economics from Guanghua School of Management at Peking University. Nicole enjoys long-distance running and reading biographies.
