Call for Papers: 5th European Retail Investment Conference (ERIC) und Doctoral Consortium

  • Date: 10.09.2018
  • Stuttgart (Germany), April 10-12, 2019

    The financial crisis has left retail investors with little understanding and trust in financial institutions. In consequence, a slew of regulations has been introduced to curtail financial market excesses and technological advancements change financial markets’ functioning. However, most research focuses on institutions and institutional investing while only few studies examine how retail investors are faring. The European Retail Investment Conference (ERIC) invites submissions that investigate financial literacy and education, new regulatory initiatives, the impact of technology and financial market innovation on retail investors, investors’ decision-making, and market microstructure.

    The paper submission deadline for the main conference and the doctoral consortium is December 01st, 2018. The keynote speaker will be Albert J. Menkveld from VU University Amsterdam. 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
