René Stulz, the Everett D. Reese Chair of Banking and Monetary Economics at Fisher, was recently named to the Office of Financial Research’s prestigious Finance Research Advisory Committee.

Stulz is one of 40 of the top financial minds from across the country to be selected to the committee from industry and academia. The group was created as part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and provides advice and recommendations on issues, processes, studies and reports on a range of topics regarding financial data, related technology and threats to financial stability, among others.

“Being selected to be a part of the Financial Research Advisory Committee is a tremendous honor and responsibility,” said Stulz. “I look forward to working with some of the very best leaders from the financial industry and academia as we work to ensure the transparency, stability and strength of the U.S. financial industry.”

Stulz is considered to be a leader in financial research, earning recognition from Thomson Reuters as one of the world’s most influential scientific minds. He is a former editor of the Journal of Finance and the only scholar in the Big Ten who is a former president of the American Finance Association.

“René’s dedication to advancing the field of finance through his research and his engagement with leading organizations such as the Office of Financial Research demonstrates the impact that Fisher faculty can and are having on numerous industries,” said Bernadette Minton, chair of the Department of Finance at Fisher. “I look forward to René’s work as a part of this prestigious committee as well as his continued research as one of the top scholars in his field.”

The Office of Financial Research, a component of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, promotes financial stability by looking across the financial system to measure and analyze risks, perform essential research, and collect and standardize financial data.
