Submission Deadline: 10 May 2020 (midnight)

Submissions are now open for the 7th Young Finance Scholars’ (YFS) Conference at University of Sussex Business School being held on  1–2 June 2020 in Brighton.

The special theme for this year’s event is Responsible Finance, which includes environmental issues, sustainability, ethical investments and the detection of illegal or manipulative trading. As always, they welcome submissions from all area of finance such as asset pricing, banking, behavioural finance, corporate finance, entrepreneurial finance, financial econometrics, fintech, insurance, investment management, quantitative finance, risk management and trading. And, as always, their choice of special topic is to promote research in an area which is particularly important in today’s financial markets.

YFS is Europe’s premier forum for PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and other early-career researchers (i.e. junior faculty without tenure). It provides an opportunity for you to present, discuss and debate your research, network with peers and receive comments and advice from leading researchers including editors of some key finance journals. This year you will gain a deeper understanding of the incredible scope of responsible finance and its potential to revolutionise developments in all types of financial markets and institutions.
