The sixth European Summer Symposium in Financial Markets will take place at the Studienzentrum in Gerzensee, Switzerland. The purpose of the symposium is to bring together researchers in finance in a relaxed environment to pursue research that is of common interest. There will be four focus sessions, but a substantial amount of time is reserved for independent work and collaborative research. During the first week there will be sessions on Empirical Research on Signalling and The Term Structure of Interest Rates. In the second week the sessions will focus on Delegated Risk Management and Shareholders Rights, Ownership and Control.
