Biography

Hugues Langlois holds a Masters in Financial Engineering (2008) from HEC Montreal and a BCom in Finance and Economics (2006) and a PhD in Finance (2014) from McGill University.

His main area of research is asset pricing with a special emphasis on investment management. His work has been published in the Review of Financial Studies, the Journal of Financial Economics, the Journal of Financial & Quantitative Analysis, and the Review of Finance. His work on return asymmetries was awarded the 2015 Crowell First Prize from PanAgora Asset Management. Hugues also worked from 2007 to 2013 as a portfolio manager at a financial institution in Canada.

Hugues Langlois created in 2016 the AXA-HEC MOOC Investment Management in an Evolving and Volatile World. This online course, whose lectures are jointly given by Hugues and managers at AXA Investment Management, introduces learners to asset management. So far more than 15,000 learners have enrolled to follow the course on the online platform Coursera.

Hugues Langlois is also the co-author of Rational Investing – The Subtleties of Asset Management, a short and non-technical book that gives an overview of the current state of practice and academic research in asset management.
