Cambridge Endowment for Research in Finance (CERF)


Call for Papers is now closed

The Cambridge Endowment for Research in Finance (CERF) welcomes submissions for its 2015 Corporate Finance Theory Symposium to be held in Cambridge UK, Cambridge Judge Business School,  18-19 September 2015.

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 2015 symposium will be similar in nature to last year’s edition (Cambridge Corporate Finance Theory Symposium 2014).  We expect to have about 9 papers (each with a discussant) and one keynote speech. This year’s keynote speaker will be Bruno Biais (University of Toulouse).
