"University of Washington Foster School of Business Faculty Philip Bond"

Philip Bond

Philip Bond, the Norman J. Metcalfe Endowed Professor in Finance at the University of Washington Foster School of Business, has been named incoming co-editor of the Journal of Finance.

He will begin his appointment at the premier academic journal in the discipline of finance in July 2016.

Bond joined the Foster School Department of Finance and Business Economics in 2013 after earning his PhD at the University of Chicago and serving on the faculties of the University of Minnesota Carson School of Management, the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.

His area of expertise is the role of asymmetric information and contraction friction in financial markets.

Bond’s latest study in the Journal of Finance examines Wall Street’s elaborate compensation packages and concludes that they are necessary—though not necessarily deserved—to motivate the high performance required in work with such serious consequences on other people’s money.

Bond currently serves as associate editor at the journal Economic Theory, and at the Journal of Finance until assuming his new position in 2016.

The Journal of Finance, published by the American Finance Association, publishes leading research across all the major fields of financial research. It is one of the most widely cited academic journals on finance and one of the most widely cited journals in all of economics as well.

Bond is one of 37 Foster faculty members currently leading the editorial review process at a top-tier academic journal (or several).
