Andre de Souza joined New York University Stern School of Business as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Finance in September 2015. Professor de Souza’s research is principally in mutual funds, which he studies from three angles. First, he tries to understand the determinants of their performance and why, for instance, performance persists in some funds and not in others. Second, he studies their behavior as skilled investors, with a view to better understanding the behavior of investors in general. Finally, he is interested in the effects of their trading on stock and bond prices.

Prior to joining NYU Stern, Professor de Souza was an Assistant Professor of Finance at the Fordham University School of Business.

Professor de Souza received his Ph.D. in Finance from NYU Stern. He holds an M.B.A. and a B.A. in History and Psychology from Goa University in India.
