His primary research interests are sustainable and responsible finance, corporate finance, corporate governance, and behavioral finance.
Recent Research:
One of Prof. Krüger's latest studies proposes a systematic way of quantifying the portfolio-level environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance of institutional investors. The paper shows that institutional investors with longer investment horizons such as pension funds and insurance companies tend to have better portfolio-level environmental and social performance than investors with a shorter horizon. The research also shows that better portfolio-level environmental and social performance translates into lower portfolio risk suggesting that ESG or sustainability analysis can serve as a risk management device for investors.
