SFS Cavalcade Asia-Pacific 2017

2017 SFS Cavalcade Asia-Pacific Program


Given the increasing success of the North American edition and the evident demand for conferences of this quality in accessible locations, the SFS is happy to announce its plans for an Asia-Pacific version of the Cavalcade. The SFS Cavalcade Asia-Pacific is a joint project of the Review of Financial Studies, the Review of Corporate Finance Studies, and the Review of Asset Pricing Studies. It will be a high-quality conference covering all areas of finance. The format is 55 minutes per paper with several concurrent 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.

Conference Chairs

Chair: Bernard Yeung (National University of Singapore)
Vice Chair: Ron Masulis (UNSW Business School)
Associate Chair: Kalok Chan (CUHK Business School)

Host’s Faculty Sponsor: Hong Zhang (Tsinghua University)
Event Organization by Leigh Ann Clark (SFS)
