Stuttgart, Germany, April 22-24, 2015
The financial crisis has left retail investors with little understanding and trust in financial institutions. Since the crisis a slew of regulations have been introduced to curtail financial market excesses. We have yet to develop an understanding of the effect of these regulations on investors. Most research focuses on institutions and institutional investing with little focus on how retail investors are faring. Few researchers have studied, or been able to study, the common conjecture that retail investors have retracted from and no longer participate in the financial market. The European Retail Investment Conference (ERIC) invites submissions that investigate financial literacy and education, regulation and new regulatory bodies, the impact of technology on retail investors, investors’ decision-making, and market microstructure
The paper submission deadline is November 08, 2014 for the main conference and for the doctoral consortium. The Keynote Speaker will be Joseph Engelberg from University of California at San Diego – Rady School of Management. Prizes of 600 EUR (best paper) and 400 EUR (second best paper) will be awarded for the best doctoral student papers. Further information can be found on www.retailinvestmentconference.org or in the Call for Papers.
