He was previously an Assistant Professor at NYU Stern from 1988 to 1994. Professor Tuckman teaches a class entitled, “Debt Instruments and Markets.”
Professor Tuckman’s current research focuses on public policy with respect to financial markets. His most recent papers include proposals to reform the tri-party repo market, the derivatives safe harbor provisions and the Fed’s provision of liquidity in a crisis. The third edition of his textbook, Fixed Income Securities: Tools for Today’s Markets, was published in fall 2011.

Before his work in prime services, Professor Tuckman managed research groups across a wide range of cash and derivative product areas. He started his industry career at Salomon Brothers in U.S. fixed income arbitrage trading.
