The Adam Smith Workshops in Asset Pricing and Corporate Finance are a regular event organised jointly by EDHEC Business School, HEC Paris, Imperial College Business School, London Business School, London School of Economics and Political Science, Saïd Business School (University of Oxford) and the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR).
Three EDHEC PhD in Finance faculty members, Professors Laurent Calvet, Kim Peijnenburg, and Raman Uppal are part of the Asset Pricing programme committee.
In April 2020, EDHEC Business School will host the event for the first time on the Nice campus.
It will be a great opportunity for the PhD in Finance students to participate actively in this academic conference to further their knowledge of current research in Asset Pricing, and Corporate Finance, and to prepare for future research presentations.
The 2019 event just took place in London and leading experts discussed their research in parallel or joint sessions in both fields. EDHEC Professor, Kim Peijnenburg presented a working paper entitled « Household Portfolio Underdiversification and Probability Weighting: Evidence from the Field » co-authored with Stephen G. Dimmock, Roy Kouwenberg, and Olivia S. Mitchell.
