We at the RFS were saddened to learn of the passing of Professor Peter Christoffersen of the University of Toronto. Peter was an Associate Editor of the RFS from 2012-2015, and a valued member of the Society for Financial Studies. We extend our sympathies to his wife, Professor Susan Christoffersen, and his family. Rotman has created an In Memoriam page, which may be viewed here.
