Call for Papers: 4th European Retail Investment Conference (ERIC) und Doctoral Consortium

  • Date: 26.10.2016
  • Stuttgart, Germany, May 17-19, 2017

    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 and financial market innovation on retail investors, investors’ decision-making, and market microstructure.

    The paper submission deadline is January 01, 2017 for the main conference and for the doctoral consortium. The Keynote Speaker will be David L. Yermack from New York University – Stern School of Business. Prizes of 600 EUR (best paper) and 400 EUR (second best paper) will be awarded for the best doctoral student papers.
