New Frontiers in Asset Pricing

Mon, Jul 18 2022, 9:30am - Wed, Jul 20 2022, 4:15pm PDT
Lucas Conference Center, Room A
Landau Economics Building
579 Jane Stanford Way, Stanford

This session is for asset pricing papers on the frontier of the discipline.  Particular areas of focus are in macro finance, computation, machine learning, and climate finance.

Possible topics include but are not limited to the following: asset pricing, investor heterogeneity, learning and ambiguity, new preference structures for pricing models, or using machine learning to understand the cross-section of returns. As the analysis of such models often requires the use of computational methods, we encourage submissions that develop and make use of new numerical techniques.

A particular area of interest is climate finance, where both climate change and the policy responses to climate change present new risks in asset pricing markets.  Topics of interest include asset pricing with heterogeneous agents and disaster risks, credit risk modeling for possibly stranded assets, the implications of integrated assessment models for financial risks, and methodological advances in solution methods for complex analyses of climate finance models.
