VSFX 2019

Vienna Symposium on Foreign Exchange Markets

WU Research Institute for Capital Markets (ISK) will organize the second Vienna Symposium on Foreign Exchange Markets, in Vienna at Palais Coburg from August 19-20, 2019.

Topic

Research on risk premia, factors, and predictive regressions has traditionally focused on equity markets, while research on foreign exchange has been lagging despite its huge potential. Currently, the low yield environment, large international portfolio flows and unconventional monetary policy have made it crucial for asset managers to incorporate FX strategies and risk management. We therefore welcome papers on FX risk premia, FX strategies, FX valuation, FX and monetary policy, Emerging Market currencies, currency pegs, etc.
