Welcome to the 22nd Annual Conference on Financial Economics and Accounting
Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business
will host the 22nd Annual Conference on Financial Economics and Accounting (CFEA) November 18 and 19, 2011
The Conference on Financial Economics and Accounting is sponsored by a consortium of eight universities (Indiana University, Georgia State University, University of Maryland, New York University, University of North Carolina, Rutgers University, University of Southern California, and University of Texas). It is a highly selective, refereed conference of research papers in financial economics and accounting. The conference holds parallel sessions on topics that are broadly of interest to both finance and accounting researchers. The Financial Economics and Accounting Conference will showcase
various sessions on best practices and current events in
Accounting and Finance with distinct keynote speakers
presenting their perspective on the world of Financial
Economics and Accounting.
Keynote Speaker (Dinner) George Constantinides is the Leo Melamed Professor of Finance at the University of Chicago. Professor Constaninides studies the causes of the historically observed premium of equity returns over bond returns, the value premium, and the size premium; the pricing and hedging of fixed-income securities, options, futures, and other derivatives; the effects of transaction costs and taxes on the pricing and hedging of derivatives; and portfolio management.
Keynote Speaker (Luncheon) Martin Fridson is "perhaps the most well-known figure in the high yield world," according to Investment Dealers’ Digest. Over a 25-year span with brokerage firms including Salomon Brothers, Morgan Stanley, and Merrill Lynch, he became known for his innovative work in credit analysis and investment strategy. Fridson received his B.A. cum laude in history from Harvard College and his M.B.A. from Harvard Business School.
