Esther Eiling is an Associate Professor of Finance at the University of Amsterdam. Her research focuses on human capital, labor mobility and asset pricing, as well as international finance. One of her recent papers examines the asset pricing implications of heterogeneity in human capital. In particular, she finds that the cross-section of expected stock returns is primarily affected by industry-level rather than aggregate labor income risk. Her research has been published in the Journal of Finance, the Review of Finance and the Journal of International Money and Finance.
Prior to joining the University of Amsterdam, she was a faculty member at the University of Toronto, Rotman School of Management.
Eiling received a Ph.D. in Finance from Tilburg University.
