12th Annual Hedge Fund Research Conference

This academic meeting will take place in Paris during January 16-17, 2020. Academic sessions will cover the latest researches on asset management. We welcome submissions on hedge funds, mutual funds and private equity funds, but also, more broadly, papers that seek to improve the understanding of the roles of different market intermediaries and the effect of their behaviour on asset prices.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to: institutional investors’ risks and performance; transparency (reporting) and due diligence; financial intermediation activity; hedge fund and broad macroeconomic issues such as systemic risk and contagion; institutional investors’ incentives and activism; portfolio liquidation and liquidity; financial regulation; private equity funds; ETFs; etc.
