Robert J. Richmond is an Assistant Professor of Finance at New York University’s Stern School of Business. He earned his Ph.D. in Finance from the Anderson School of Management at the University of California, Los Angeles in 2016 and his B.S. in Applied Mathematics from University of Colorado at Boulder in 2011.

Professor Richmond’s research covers topics in international finance, macroeconomics, and asset pricing. His work in international finance shows how countries’ positions in the global trade network impact their interest rates and currency risk as well as how exchange rate movements can largely be explained by measures of physical and cultural distance between countries. In asset pricing, his research studies the impact of institutional investors on equity prices. His research has been published in outlets such as the Journal of Finance and the Review of Financial Studies.
