Prof. Dr. Angelo Ranaldo was awarded a SNF grant for the project on "FX Trading Volume and Illiquidity". In addition, the research commission of the University of St.Gallen supplements this grant with a success bonus to facilitate the start of this basic research.
Prof. Dr. Angelo Ranaldo was on sabbatical leave during the spring semester 2018. The main reason for his sabbatical leave was that the European Central Bank (ECB) has awarded him the 2018 Duisenberg Fellowship. In this framework, Prof. Ranaldo permanently visited the ECB from March to June 2018. He carried out two research projects. First, jointly with Stefano Corradin Ph.D. (Senior Economist at ECB), analyzing the Euro wholesale funding market using unique and confidential data accessible only at the ECB in Frankfurt. The second project is a joint work with Dr. Jens Eisenschmidt (ECB) and Alexander Bechtel (Ph.D. candidate and research assistant at Prof. Dr. Angelo Ranaldo’s chair). In this project they analyze how Quantitative Easing (in particular the ECB Public Asset Purchase Program) affects securities and money markets.
From February 2019 Benedikt Ballensiefen (Ph.D. student in the
PiF-Program) will stay for a one or two year
period at World Bank in Washington to work on his dissertation.
