Martijn's Expertise

Professor Cremers serves as the Martin J. Gillen Dean of the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame since July 2019. He has been on the faculty at Notre Dame since 2012, and was appointed the Bernard J. Hank Professor of Finance in 2018. Previously, he was a faculty member of the Yale School of Management for 10 years. His paper, “How active is your fund manager? A new measure that predicts performance” (published in 2009 in the Review of Financial Studies) introduced “Active Share”, a new measure of active management. This innovative analysis is based on a comparison of fund holdings versus those of its benchmark and has become widely adopted throughout the financial industry. He has an undergraduate degree in Econometrics from the Free University Amsterdam and earned his PhD in Finance from the Stern School of Business at New York University.
