In Memoriam Peter Christoffersen

It brings me great sadness to report that Peter Christoffersen passed away this morning after a long and valiant struggle with cancer. (University of Toronto page here, personal page here.) He departed peacefully, surrounded by loving family. I knew Peter and worked closely with him for nearly thirty years. He was the finest husband, father, and friend imaginable. He was also the finest scholar imaginable, certainly among the leading financial economists and financial econometricians of his generation. I will miss him immensely, both personally and professionally.
