10/09/2021 Corporate Finance Theory Symposium, Online Seminar

Organizers: Simon Gervais and Bart Lambrecht

The Cambridge Endowment for Research in Finance (CERF) welcomes submissions for its 2021 Corporate Finance Theory Symposium to be held online (unless otherwise notified). The symposium covers all areas of theoretical corporate finance, including theory papers that combine corporate finance theory with a related area such as banking, market micro-structure, asset pricing, and financial accounting.

The format of the 2021 symposium will be similar in nature to previous years’ editions (Previous Conferences).  We expect to have about 7 papers (each with a discussant) and one keynote speech.

The Keynote speaker for the 2021 Cambridge Corporate Finance Theory Symposium is Professor
Josef Zechner (Vienna).
