Universities’ Research Conference “Behavioral Corporate Finance"
Behavioral Corporate Finance is an emerging area which builds on traditional Finance and Economics disciplines in order to provide new insights into the actions of businesses, managers, and claimholders. One strand of research studies market perceptions of corporate actions, using these actions to predict returns and understand whether the market reacts appropriately. A second and related strand of research has focused on the corporate response: how managers might take advantage of securities market mispricing, the kinds of claims they might issue, and the kinds of investments they might undertake. A third strand has examined the importance of managers, their educational background, their experience, and their judgmental biases, to the decisions their corporations make. A final strand looks at organizational structures, for instance the structure of boards, and norms for how firms might contain aberrant managerial behavior. The range of relevant potential topics is both interesting and vast.
