Hélène Rey is the Lord Bagri Professor of Economics at London Business School. Until 2007, she was at Princeton University, as Professor of Economics and International Affairs in the Economics Department and the Woodrow Wilson School. Her research focuses on the determinants and consequences of external trade and financial imbalances, the theory and empirics of financial crises and the organization of the international monetary system. She demonstrated in particular that countries’ gross external asset positions help predict current account adjustments and the exchange rate. She introduced the concept of Global Financial Cycles and qualified the idea of the Mundellian Trilemma.
