Thanks to a very generous donation, Jean-Marie Eveillard (H.62) has funded the creation of the second endowed research chair at HEC Paris, which aims to promote research and education in behavioral finance and value investing. This chair is financed by a dedicated endowed fund, guaranteeing that the professor and chair holder is able to pursue his research and pedagogy on this theme.

Before joining the HEC faculty in 2017, he taught or was a faculty member at the Harvard Business School, Princeton University, New York University, the University of Chicago and the Toulouse School of Economics.
