Journal of Credit Risk

Lewis O’Sullivan
Managing Editor, Risk Journals

On behalf of the board and the journals team, I am delighted to announce that Professor Jens Hilscher has taken over as Co-Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Credit Risk.

Jens has been an Associate Editor with the journal for several years and he is therefore familiar with its workings and readership. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge, and we are pleased to report that he has already put in a great deal of work over the past few months to ensure a smooth transition.

Jens is currently a professor at the University of California, Davis. He holds a PhD in economics from Harvard University and a BSc and an MSc from the London School of Economics. His research has investigated the determinants of both firmand country-level credit risk, the pricing and returns of distressed securities, information about future default and systematic risk in credit ratings, information flows between credit default swap and equity markets, the measurement of possible debt deflation using inflation derivatives, and corporate bond pricing.

Jens will be working closely with his fellow Co-Editor-in-Chief Professor Linda Allen.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Nikunj Kapadia for his efforts with the journal over the past three years. This period has seen the journal go from strength to strength, thanks in no small part to Nikunj’s diligence and hard work.We are sure you will join us in wishing Nikunj all the best with his future endeavours.

We look forward to the journal’s continued development and growth under the new editorial team.
