Paolo Porchia's research mainly concerns equilibrium asset pricing, optimal portfolio choice, and fixed income. His past work has analyzed: a) optimal investment strategies when the correlation between asset returns is random, b) the equilibrium implications for the term structure of interest rates of agents' aversion to model ambiguity, and, more recently, c) the equilibrium properties of the cross-section of returns arising when assets are characterized by 'distress events' (that is, persistent times of marked cash-flow imbalance).
Prior to joining IE in 2010, Paolo has been Assistant Professor at the University of St. Gallen, where he has taught Master and PhD courses in portfolio choice theory, fixed-income and asset pricing. He has received a PhD in Finance from the University of Lugano, and a Bachelor´s degree in Economics from the University of Rome, 'La Sapienza'.
