Jonas' research interest revolve around asset pricing, return predictability, climate finance, and exchange rates. He is particularly interested in understanding risk premia in financial markets and their behavior both over time and in the cross section. For example, he has studied bond risk premia and their predictability and how predictability itself can change with fundamental variables such as the business cycle. He has recently done work on the influence of monetary policy announcements on the equity premium and stock betas and on understanding the drivers of house prices using subjective expectations. Jonas has recently become interested in climate finance.
