New Stars in Finance

IE Business School celebrates on July 4, 2008 the first edition of New Stars in Finance Conference. Organized by the IE Business School and IMDEA Social Sciences, this conference aims to bring every year the five most successful rookies in the finance job market. The selection is based on a survey among 25 senior scholars from the finance departments of top US Universities. This is a unique opportunity for finance academics and practitioners in Europe and beyond to share ideas with the new rising stars in finance.  Furthermore, it offers a great opportunity for Ph.D. candidates to get acquainted with cutting edge research.

In this first edition Ph.D. candidates who have been hired by the University of Chicago, Stanford University, New York University, University of Pennsylvania, and Duke University will talk about topics like

  • The Cross-section of Managerial Ability and Risk Preferences,
  • Deep Habits and the Cross Section of Expected Returns,

  • Ambiguous Information, Risk Aversion, and Asset Pricing,
  • Levered Returns
