The Nicolas NALPAS Fund
Professor of Finance at Toulouse Business School from 2004-2015, the Nicolas NALPAS fund was set up on the initiative of Nicolas’ colleagues, students, former graduates, family and friends, after his untimely death on 19th January 2015 following a tragic diving accident.
Created in honour of his memory, the Fund will be used to pursue the projects Nicolas had started with his students, and defend the values that he held dear: helping others, striving for excellence and pushing oneself to go the extra mile.

Nicolas Nalpas was awarded a PhD in Economic Science from the University of Paris - Panthéon-Sorbonne. After working as Assistant Professor of Finance at HEC Montreal, he joined Toulouse Business School as Professor of Finance in 2004. He lectured in the following areas: derivatives, interest-rate instruments, numerical methods - such as Monte Carlo simulations - and corporate finance. He was in charge of teaching the Finance major in the first year of the Master’s degree, the Banking and Financial Markets vocational option in the 2nd year of the Master’s degree, and the Advanced Finance Program: a course in Quantitative Finance.
He was also responsible for the Economics and Finance Department at TBS. His research focused on risk theory, portfolio management and the evaluation of financial assets. He contributed to several research papers on the pricing of derivatives, and Hedge Fund replication. In addition, he contributed to the French adaptation of “Corporate Finance” written by Jonathan Berk and Peter DeMarzo.
