HEC Paris Creates the
Jean-Marie Eveillard Endowed Chair
in Value Investing
▲ Jean-Marie Eveillard
The Jean-Marie Eveillard Endowed Chair in Value Investing was created thanks to a €1.5 million gift from one of the world’s pioneering investors in global value stocks. The chair aims at promoting research and education in behavioral finance and value investing. “We are extremely grateful to Jean-Marie Eveillard for his generosity,” said HEC Dean Peter Todd. “His commitment to supporting research and teaching at HEC inspires us.”
The first year of the chair will see the introduction of a behavioral finance class in the HEC curriculum, as well as the supervision of master theses on market anomalies by the school’s MiF students. Academic research will focus on market anomalies based on fundamental analysis, and on sustainable finance.
The chair’s first holder, Augustin Landier, is known for his research on behavioral and corporate finance, asset management and banking. “I am deeply honored to be the inaugural chair holder,” he declared. “Jean-Marie Eveillard is a legendary investor who has one of the best long-term track records in the business. We are proud to be able to reinforce research and teaching at HEC on the principles and the historical achievements of value investing with his support.”
