Bruce Tuckman joined New York University Stern School of Business as a Clinical Professor of Finance in September 2012, after having been an adjunct professor during spring 2012. He was previously an Assistant Professor at NYU Stern from 1988 to 1994. Professor Tuckman teaches "Debt Instruments and Markets," a new course, "Trading in Cash and Derivative Securities," and a new short module, “Liquidity Risk Management.”

Professor Tuckman's current research focuses on public policy with respect to financial markets. His most recent papers include proposals with respect to the Fed's provision of liquidity in a crisis, derivatives regulation, and reform of the tri-party repo market. The third edition of his textbook, Fixed Income Securities: Tools for Today's Markets, was published in fall 2011 by John Wiley & Sons.

Prior to joining NYU Stern, Professor Tuckman was a managing director and global head of research for prime services at Lehman Brothers and later at Barclays Capital, where he was also a member of the executive committee of that division. During his tenure he oversaw significant improvements to the risk governance of the financing and prime brokerage businesses as well as the development and implementation of an industry-leading portfolio margin product. 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.

Professor Tuckman received an A.B. in Statistics with Economics from Harvard College and a Ph.D. in Economics from MIT.
