REGISTER NOW        PRELIMINARY PROGRAM

 

The SFS Cavalcade is a 2.5-3.0 day conference covering all areas of finance. The format is 55 minutes per paper with parallel sessions. Our goal is to provide a setting that produces the kind of in-depth participation of a smaller conference while accommodating the variety of papers of a larger one. The host school’s faculty and Ph.D. students receive complimentary registration to the conference and all events. The SFS Finance Cavalcade conference is a joint project of the Review of Financial Studies, the Review of Corporate Finance Studies, and the Review of Asset Pricing Studies.

 

*UPDATED November 19, 2019  –  Note from Conference Chairs*

Your Asia-Pacific Cavalcade hosts understand that many international visitors are concerned about coming to Hong Kong given the recent newspaper and television reports abroad. As you might imagine, we take particular care to monitor events since we live and work here. While the press reports may make it appear that the protests are located throughout Hong Kong, in truth they do not. Moreover, most of the protests are peaceful and occur without incident. (These, of course, fail to attract the press’ attention.) Overall, Hong Kong’s economy and businesses continue to operate normally.

We want to encourage everyone to come and make this year’s SFS Asia-Pacific Cavalcade  a successful event. Your support at this particular time is especially appreciated. As noted previously, the protests have not targeted the conference venue (the Cyberport executive center). Furthermore, the airport is running smoothly and there should not be any problems either arriving to or departing from the conference. We care about the safety of our guests and strongly believe the Cavalcade can go forward as planned. We continue to monitor events and will of course let everyone know about any significant changes (good or bad) that might impact anybody’s time here in Hong Kong.
