His current research focuses on the valuation of the illiquidity risk, the dynamics of ownership concentration, and on the determinants of bank runs and financial fragility. His past research, in topics such as financial innovation and the acquisitions control premium, has appeared in leading academic journals, including The Journal of Finance, the Journal of Financial Economics, the Review of Financial Studies and the Review of Finance. Enrique won the prize for the best symposium paper at the European Finance Association Conference in 2009 for his research on the relationship between the bankruptcy code and the return premium across countries.
