13th Annual Hedge Fund Research Conference

This academic meeting will take place in Paris on January 20-21, 2022. To adapt to the sanitary situation, the organizers are planning to run the conference in a hybrid mode over two days. The first day of the conference, we are going to host the presenters and the attendees willing to travel to Paris on the premises of the Université Paris Dauphine – PSL. The other day, the presentations will be held online, the attendees will have the possibility to follow the presentations on Dauphine premises and meet each other over the regular coffee-breaks. Both days the presentations will be simultaneously diffused online. In case travel or other sanitary restrictions make it challenging to maintain the conference in the mix mode, it will be held fully online.

Academic sessions will cover the latest research on asset management. We welcome submissions on hedge funds, mutual funds and private equity funds, but also, more broadly, papers that seek to improve our understanding of the role of different market intermediaries and the effect of their behaviour on asset prices.

TOPICS: 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.

A limited accommodation and travel grants for presenting doctoral students will be available upon request.
