19 - 20 August 2019 / Vienna, Palais Coburg / WU Research Institute for Capital Markets (ISK)

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

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS
Deadline for submission is March 31, 2019. You can submit your paper on our website: https://www.wu.ac.at/en/isk/conferences/vsfx-2019/.
Authors of accepted papers will be notified by April 30, 2019.
