on the March 26, 2021

The annual prize for the best young researcher in finance and insurance has been awarded to Matthieu Bouvard , UT1-TSM-TSE researcher (2020 recipient)

This prize is awarded by "The Institut Louis Bachelier" in collaboration with "La Fondation d'entreprise SCOR pour la Science".

Matthieu Bouvard’s research focuses on financial intermediation and the impact of technological innovation in finance (Fintech). His article published in 2019 in the very prestigious Review of Financial Studies and co-authored with Bruno Biais, Christophe Bisière and Catherine Casamatta, “The Blockchain Folk Theorem”, has attracted particular attention. The authors reveal two major sources of inefficiency in blockchain. On the one hand, it generates instability that leads to persistent forks. On the other hand, it encourages miners to over-invest socially inefficiently in computing power.
