Academic sessions will cover the latest research on hedge funds, mutual funds, ETFs, and private equity funds. Additionally, we welcome broader studies that aim to enhance our understanding of the roles of various market intermediaries and the impact of their behavior on asset prices.

Topics include: 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; mutual funds; ETFs; etc.
