Personal profile

Research interests

I am Jorgo Goossens, a PhD candidate at the department of Econometrics & OR and a researcher at APG Asset Management. My research interests cover asset pricing, micro-econometrics and pensions. I teach the course quantitative finance in the third year of the BSc Econometrics & OR.

I am awarded Industrial Doctorate funding from the NWO for my pension research both at Tilburg University and APG Asset Management.

My PhD project and its research is: "Behavioral biases and individual heterogeneity in pensions: Household Asset Liability Management." I am supervised by Prof. Dr. B. Werker (Tilburg University), Prof. Dr. M. Knoef (Leiden University), Prof. Dr. E. Ponds (Tilburg University and APG Asset Management) and Dr. R. van den Goorbergh (APG Asset Management). My expected graduation date is September 2022.

Currently, I work on behavioural finance: the impact of time-inconsistent preferences for investment and pension decisions.
