The Second International Moscow Finance Conference
|This was our second international conference where we invited world-class researchers in the area of financial economics. Invited speakers presented their latest research and comment on research papers produced by local (Moscow-based) researchers of the International Laboratory of Financial Economics (LFE).|
We see it as important to have such a conference in Moscow since Moscow becomes more important as an emerging financial market, and shares many specific features of macroeconomic conditions, monetary policy, financial institutions, corporate finance and governance of other emerging markets. At the same time, there is still only a small number of active researchers in the area based in Russia, so every conference hopefully gives an impulse to local faculty and students to produce more research in the area of finance. It gives us the opportunity to expose our research, contact junior and senior researchers in the field, and discuss their and our research in a stimulating intellectual atmosphere.
Among our invited speakers we had Dmitry Livdan from University of California at Berkeley, Giovanna Nicodano from the University of Turin, Herakles Polemarchakis from the University of Warwick, Dimitrios Tsomocos from Oxford University, Bart Taub from Durham University, Georgy Chabakauri and Stephane Guibaud from the London School of Economics.
On 09th of November, there was be a session in memoriam to the distinguished economist Sudipto Bhattacharya who died in September, 2012. Sudipto had visited ICEF and HSE in 2008 when he was teaching a short course in the MSc program “Financial Economics” and gave a public lecture under the title “Banking theories and the current financial crisis”.
