The book Corporate Finance, Theory and Practice, the website www.vernimmen.com and the Vernimmen.com newsletter are all written or were created by a team of four friends who have the rare distinction of being both investment bankers/corporate financiers and academics.

Maurizio Dallocchio is Bocconi University Professor of Corporate Finance, and Past Dean of SDA Bocconi, the leading Italian business school (Milan). He is also a board member of several international and Italian institutions and is one of the most distinguished Italian authorities on finance.

Pierre Vernimmen, who died in 1996, was both an M&A dealmaker (he advised Louis Vuitton on its merger with Moët Hennessy to create LVMH, the world luxury goods leader) and a finance teacher at HEC Paris. His book, Finance d'Entreprise, is the top selling financial textbook in French speaking countries and the forebear of Corporate Finance, Theory and Practice.
