  • Bio

    Chotibhak (Pab) Jotikasthira is an Associate Professor of Finance at the Edwin L. Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University. Prior to joining Cox, he was an Assistant Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Jotikasthira’s research interests include financial intermediation, international finance, and fixed income, with a particular focus on trading behaviors of institutional investors and their impact on asset prices. He has written extensively on the effects of institutional frictions, including regulatory capital and accounting rules, on financial intermediaries’ investment and trading incentives, which in turn shape the overall risk and interconnectedness of asset markets.

    Jotikasthira currently serves as an Associate Editor at the Review of Financial Studies.

    His research has been published in leading journals including the Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, and Review of Financial Studies, and featured in several practitioner-oriented journals and business press, including the Economist among others. Jotikasthira received his Ph.D. in finance from Indiana University in 2009. Prior to starting his doctoral coursework, he worked as a Portfolio and Risk Manager for the Bank of Thailand, where he managed $38 billion in foreign-exchange reserves invested in global fixed-income markets and developed quantitative models for formulating investment strategies.
