I work primarily in the financial field pertaining to investment decisions and more specifically the management of financial portfolios. This research addresses a variety of issues of which the most important include: the effectiveness of the market, uncertainty in asset prices, the impact of different world markets on each other as well as how these factors influence investors’ asset portfolios.

Although this field of research has always been important, the financial crisis of 2007/8 again drew researchers’ attention to this field. This research affects a wide community, which include banks, investment funds, pension funds and private investors, and the results from such research serve as criterion for policy makers in the industry.
