16th Annual Hedge Fund Research Conference

This academic meeting will take place in Paris on January 23-24, 2025.

We are pleased to announce our keynote speaker for this year: Ronnie Sadka, Haub Family Professor in Finance, Boston College.

Academic sessions will cover the latest research on asset management. We welcome submissions on hedge funds, mutual funds, ETFs 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.

Submission Deadline: September 15, 2024
