The Yale School of Management has created a named fund in honor of Jonathan E. Ingersoll Jr., the Adrian C. Israel Professor of International Trade and Finance, who retires this year after more than 30 years.
The fund is designated to support scholarship and teaching in the area of finance.
Ingersoll, who has taught at Yale SOM since 1982, was one of a group of scholars who helped create the theoretical underpinning for several decades of innovations on Wall Street. The Cox-Ingersoll-Ross model is still used to determine the movement of interest rates and the valuation of derivatives. His book Theory of Financial Decision Making is a standard text in financial economics.
Gifts in honor of Jonathan Ingersoll may be made to the Yale SOM Alumni Fund. Gifts made by June 30 will be recognized in a special section of Impact, the Yale SOM philanthropy report.
