After attending graduate school at the Terry College of Business in the mid-1980s, Mr. Kohler left academia to pursue a career in Corporate banking, working for several of the big U.S. investment banks. During this time, he gained expertise in derivatives sales and trading and the securities underwriting business. In 2012, he left Morgan Stanley where he had served as Managing Director in the bank’s equity capital markets division, and returned with his family to Athens. Since then, Mr. Kohler returned to teaching both Economics and Finance to share his expertise with students. He currently teaches classes in Investments and Derivatives for the Department of Finance and serves as the faculty adviser for the student managed investment fund (SMIF).
