Marina Gertsberg

Phd Candidate in Finance

I am a PhD Student at the Department of Finance at Maastricht University and a Visiting Scholar at the School of Management at Yale University since 2018.

I am also affiliated through a research cooperation with Artnet, New York.


I am on the job market and will be available for interviews at the 2019 FMA meeting in San Diego and the AFA/ASSA meetings in Atlanta.


Research Interests:

  • Alternative investments/ finance of art and conspicuous consumption goods
  • Corporate and venture finance
  • Gender economics
  • Corporate strategy


My research agenda centers around the three fields alternative investments, entrepreneurship and strategy. The question underlying my research is how information asymmetries affect prices and the behavior of various market participants.

In order to study this question I combine elements from financial markets, organizational behavior and social psychology.


I am passionate about exploring new and unique data sources and empirical methods.
