Business School to co-host Behavioural Finance Working Group Conference

Newcastle University Business School, together with Queen Mary University of London’s School of Business and Management are proud to announce the 2017 Behavioural Finance Working Group Conference.

The conference will take place between 12-13 June 2017 at Queen Mary University London, with Keynote Speaker Professor Malcom P. Baker, Head of Finance, Harvard Business School.

It will consider how the fields of behavioural finance, economic psychology, financial socio-analysis and other related areas can enhance our understanding of financial behaviours. This is closely aligned to Newcastle University Business School’s own Behavioural Research in Finance (BRiF) Research Group, which is led by Professor Darren Duxbury, who is also co-organiser of the 2017 Behavioural Finance Working Group Conference.

Call for papers

Papers exploring any Behavioural Finance issue will be considered, but those related to the influence of sentiment and mood on the decision-making of individuals (e.g. consumption, saving, borrow, investing) and/or corporations (e.g. financing, investing, payout policy), and the implications of such for markets and economic policy, will be particularly welcomed.

We invite you to submit extended abstracts, papers-in-progress or full papers by the deadline of March 3rd 2017.

The organisers will come back with a decision within two weeks after this deadline.

To submit a paper or extended abstract for consideration please email a PDF version of the manuscript to: bfwg@qmul.ac.uk
