Sam Thomas, PhD is a Professor of Banking and Finance at the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University. His research is centered on the practice of investment science and valuation. His focus is on integrating an understanding of the global business cycle with corporate finance strategy and investment strategy. One of Thomas’ recent projects focuses on innovations in designing life-long portfolios by understanding phases of the business cycle and incorporating that knowledge with asset allocation that is consistent with investment objectives.
