ASB Tracks: Finance

The ASB conference Finance track welcomes a wide range of Finance research submissions from theoretical modeling to practitioner-oriented empirical studies, and from incomplete papers to papers under Journal review. Rather than looking for the shortcomings of submissions, the Finance track reviewers look for what is new and interesting in a submission, so that its presentation will produce lively and helpful discussion. In past ASB conferences, research presented has included: exploring the impact of higher order moments on asset pricing anomalies; empirical modeling of the term structure of interest rates; deriving a transactions cost based model for hedging option contracts; relating Newton’s laws of Physics to investor behaviour, as well as traditional empirical tests of the impact of explanatory variables on observed investor and corporate performance.
