Fabian Gamm was born on March 4, 1991 in Schwäbisch Hall, Germany. In 2013 he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration at the University of Mannheim. In his bachelor thesis, he examined the relationship between idiosyncratic moments and the cross-section of stock returns. Afterwards, Fabian completed the Mannheim Master in Management with majors in Finance and Economics and received his Master of Science degree in 2015. In his master thesis, he examined the relationship between investor sentiment and stock market returns in a global sample.
During his undergraduate studies, Fabian spent one semester abroad at Warwick Business School (University of Warwick, United Kingdom) and also did an internship in the quantitative risk management department of the ‘Bausparkasse Schwäbisch Hall’.
Moreover, Fabian worked as a teaching assistant in undergraduate courses for operations management as well as a course in quantitative economics for several semesters at the University of Mannheim.
His research interest especially lies in the interrelation between behavioral finance and classical empirical asset pricing with an emphasis on cross-cultural psychological differences between investors. He is particularly interested in critical empirical analysis on neo-classical economic theories.
Why I chose the University of Mannheim and in particular the GESS
From my previous studies, I already knew how strong and innovative both the research and the teaching at the University of Mannheim are – and I wanted to be a part of this network. Since there are various chairs in the area of Finance, there is the opportunity to get insights into the different fields of Finance. I believe that especially the structured course phase at the GESS will provide me with the methodological foundations needed for my future professional life.
