"FinTech and Disruptive Innovation in Financial Services," led by Michael B. Imerman, Theodore A. Lauer Distinguished Professor of Investments and Assistant Professor in the Perella Department of Finance, Lehigh University.
The talk will provide insights into disruptive technological innovation in financial services, or "FinTech". The talk will focus on three aspects:
Graduate student research on display during the symposium will include:
Joanna Andrejkow (Accounting): I explore the effects that conscious and non-conscious goal primes have on employee productivity in an experimental setting and find that productivity can be increased through the use of both conscious and non-conscious primes.
Yong Chen (Accounting): I investigate the information content contained in accounting earnings, taxable income, and cash flow from operations when firms are engaged in earnings management, tax avoidance, or both.
Sogaolu Moyosore (Economics): Using a multivariate regression model, this study examines the income losses associated with widowhood and maps out the potential income recovery.
Pan Jiang (Financial Economics): We are going to track index by tracking leading factors so that with a portfolio including less number of stocks we can still achieve neglectable tracking error.
Laszlo Z. Nagy (Financial Economics): I construct new models of firm-specific distress and success in order to examine subsequent changes in corporate strategies and their effect on firm financial performance.
Paulan van Nes (Financial Economics): This study considers the actions of sophisticated investors to test whether firms use stock splits to provide positive signals to the market.
Ajay Bandhu (Financial Economics): Test result of a paper under current context and by adding another dimension to analyses by comparing portfolio performance under different portfolio weights scenario of Markowitz and principal component approach.
Di Meng (Financial Economics): Test a price discovery model that effectively analyzes information incorporation across a large number of trading venues and analyze how market fragmentation affects price discovery, efficiency, and trading costs.
Olga Kanj (Financial Economics): We study how the pricing of Catastrophe Bonds changes since their market started to date.
Asfiya Taji (Marketing): This study examines the path of meaning transfer in an empirical context and investigates how changes in advertising modes and company-consumer communication have changed since McCracken (1986) theorized his model.
Shirish Panchal (Marketing): The social and economic behaviour of low-status individuals towards high-status individuals depend on how (high) status was achieved. This can have implications for market exchanges involving status asymmetries.
Bowen Hu (Math Finance): We generalize the classic Vasicek Model by introducing stochastic correlation that varies systematically with the state of the economy.
Wisdom Avusuglo (Math Finance): This project exposes an error in the transformation commonly used to define potential losses in the literature on PD-LGD dependency modelling. Error implication on risk measures is investigated through the lens of a proposed "correct-transformation."
Victoria Daniel (OB/HRM): We examined the relationship between destructive marital communication on task performance and emotional exhaustion through irritation.
Shreya Kirolikar (OB/HRM): Drawing on role congruity theory, we suggest women are more likely than men to accept glass cliff positions because precarious leadership positions are more aligned with women's gender roles than stable leadership positions.
Sara Babaee (ODS): We developed a decision-making model for pricing and distribution strategies in cold chain network with updated quality-information of perishable products.
