Gertjan Verdickt


I am an Assistant Professor of Finance (Lecturer) at the University of Auckland. In 2019, I earned my Ph.D. in Financial Economics from the University of Antwerp, with research stays at several universities such as the Stanford Graduate School of Business, University of Notre Dame, and Columbia Business School. I have previously been an assistant professor at KU Leuven and a visiting lecturer at Erasmus University Rotterdam and Monash Business School.

My academic journey has fueled a passion for financial history, coupled with empirical asset pricing and wine economics. As an assistant editor at the Financial History Review, I actively contribute to the scholarly discourse in these fields. My dedication to advancing knowledge is reflected in publications in renowned academic journals, including Explorations in Economic History, the Journal of Economic History, and the Journal of Empirical Finance. My insights also reached a broader audience, with features in notable newspapers such as Bloomberg, De Tijd, HLN, and Financial Times.

I am the co-author of the book 'Investeren in Stijl' alongside Jürgen Hanssens and a WSET Level 4 Diploma Candidate.
