We are delighted to announce the appointment of Professor Teodor Dyakov as an affiliate member of the EDHEC-Risk Climate Impact Institute. Professor Dyakov is joining our team as we ushered in the new academic year.


Teodor Dyakov is an Associate Professor in Finance at EDHEC Business School, where he teaches sustainable finance in Master of Science programmes and research methods in the PhD in Finance.

His research portfolio encompasses areas such as asset pricing, corporate governance, and international finance and has focused on their practical applications within the asset management industry. Recently, he started exploring supply chain risk and its pricing in global financial markets.

At a time when the premises of global supply chains are being questioned and challenged in the wake of the COVID pandemic and in the face of rising geopolitical tensions and conflicts and heightened attention to environmental, social and governance issues across the value chain, the main responsibility of Professor Dyakov within the Institute will be to extend his supply chain work to incorporate considerations of climate-related impacts, risks and opportunities to shed light on crucial aspects of climate change mitigation and climate-related risk management.

Additionally, he will support the EDHEC-Amundi research chair on "Climate risks and climate impact of investment portfolios" as it turns to investigating fund managers' responses to climate-related news.


Before joining EDHEC Business School, Professor Dyakov served as a faculty member of the School of Business and Economics at VU Amsterdam and was a Research Fellow at the Tinbergen Institute, a renowned multi-university institute for research and education in economics, econometrics and finance. 

His work has been published in leading scientific journals, including the Review of Finance and Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis. He holds a Ph.D. in Finance from the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University.


We extend our warmest welcome to Professor Teodor Dyakov and look forward to working with him to deliver new research-based insights on the double materiality of environmental issues in international trade and finance, the levers of climate change mitigation and adaptation in global supply chains, and their policy and portfolio implications.
