Professor of finance at the ESSEC Business School Paris-Singapore, Roméo Tédongap is an experienced academic expert in financial economics. He is very active in the fields of macro-finance (investment decisions and asset valuation models based on consumption), behavioral finance (asymmetric attitude of investors towards risk in the presence of macroeconomic uncertainty), financial modeling, and econometrics (affine and regime-switching models). His skills are confirmed by several top-rated publications, notably the Journal of Financial Economics, Review of Financial Studies, Management Science, Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, Review of Finance, Journal of Econometrics and Journal of Business and Economic Statistics.

In addition, he has developed a strong research interest on the attractiveness of African stock markets and their impact on economic growth and development. Professor Tédongap also has strong experience in advising the banking sector, particularly in microfinance, and higher education institutions in Africa.
