Associate Professor of Finance
Ines Chaieb has been Associate Professor of Finance at the University of Geneva since 2015. She was SFI Assistant Professor of Finance from 2010 to 2015 and is now an SFI faculty member. She obtained her PhD in Finance from McGill University in Canada. Prof. Chaieb is a regular speaker at major academic conferences and finance workshops worldwide.
Her main research interests lie in international finance and emerging markets.
One of Prof. Chaieb’s recent co-authored studies contributes to the burgeoning literature on financial market integration by accounting for real exchange risk when investigating the level and dynamics of market integration. Empirical analysis of 20 emerging markets, from 1988 to 2010, suggests that financial markets price not only world market and global currency risks, but also local market and local currency risks. Currency risk factors do not seem to affect market integration except during crisis periods, such as the Russian crisis of 1998 or the global financial crisis of 2008–2009.
