Peter Bossaerts pioneered the use of controlled experimentation with human subjects in the study of asset pricing. He initially focused on the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM), used throughout the financial industry to evaluate risk/return trade-offs and portfolio performance evaluation; later on he developed the methodology to test the core dynamic model used in finance, macro-economics and central banking to understand the link between asset prices, aggregate income, aggregate consumption, and business cycles (the “Lucas” model). This research was published in the main journals of finance (Journal of Finance, Review of Financial Studies, Review of Finance) and economics (Econometrica, Journal of Political Economy). The contributions led to a grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation to organise a conference with the exclusive goal of educating the best and brightest asset-pricing theorists on the use of experimental methodology. Recently, Bossaerts has started work on policy issues (using markets to promote intellectual discovery; merits and drawbacks of opaque, decentralised markets; algorithmic trading and human-robot interface); for this, he received seed grants from the U.S. National Science Foundation and the Foundation of the French Central Bank.
