Conference on Conflicts of Interest in Financial Markets
As Enron and other recent scandals have shown, street-side research analysts can neglect their obligation to their investor clienteles by writing reports favorable to the corporate clients of the brokerage firm rather than accurately depicting the state of the corporation. In corporations, managers have incentives to shirk their obligations to shareholders in favor of their own interests, perhaps leading to distortion of accounting numbers and to overly generous management compensation plans. What is the evidence on the presence and severity of these various conflicts? Should regulators limit activities that may lead to conflicts or would transparency, full disclosure and competition be adequate to deal with conflicts? These and related issues will be discussed at the conference.
