Professor Holmström is a microeconomic theorist, best known for his research on the theory of contracting and incentives especially as applied to the theory of the firm, to corporate governance, and most recently to financial crises and the supply of liquidity.

Professor Holmström thought collateral in credit markets could be replaced by information, which lead to better financial inclusion. In addition to that, data privacy should not be discussed separately from the data value.
