Chloe Xie is the Zenon Zannetos (1955) Career Development Assistant Professor in Accounting and an Assistant Professor of Accounting at the MIT Sloan School of Management.

Her research focuses on capital market imperfections – such as limits to arbitrage, deviations from von Neumann-Morgenstern preferences, criminal behavior, etc. – and how these frictions shape the information environment. Her research also considers how these frictions affect disclosure decisions, asset pricing, investor decision-making, and non-financial market outcomes. 

She previously worked as a consultant advising financial institutions on valuation, mergers/acquisitions, and corporate strategy.

Chloe Xie holds a PhD in business administration from Stanford University's Graduate School of Business.
