Motto in 2014: Interdisciplinarity and working together - making meaning of our global economic system.
Understanding and bridging disciplinary as well as cultural boundaries in Finance, Risk and Accounting research.
With special workshops on mixed-methods research approaches, financial modelling and special networking sessions for research collaborations. This conference thus aims to overcome the self-imposed paradigmatic boundaries and reflexive isomorphisms of the individual fields, and invites new and combined perspectives in the field of Finance, Risk and Accounting. Despite its methodological and disciplinary openness, it does so with a strong focus on academic rigour and robustness. All abstracts and articles will be strictly double-blind peer reviewed, and there will be longer discussion sections during the conference in which authors can discuss with a small group of interested scholars on how and where to proceed with their research.
Streams for the 14th FRAP conference:
- Quantitative Finance and Risk Modelling
- Organisational and Enterprise Risk Management
- Investment Management and Portfolio Building

‘In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity’, Albert Einstein
Turbulent markets as a context. Over the years 2007-2011, market volatility has risen enormously and just recently fell without immediate rational explanation, despite still high levels of uncertainty and perceived volatility. As a consequence, traditional planning and forecasting tools have turned out to be not always applicable, or even erroneous. Inherent complexity in structures and agent relations caused fatal and unforeseen impacts, and some tend to agree that in cases risk once again became uncertainty, because formerly reliable deterministic models on the micro and macro level were invalidated.
Such an extreme environment however also creates opportunities for innovation in processes and thinking. At the same time, information as a prerequisite for rational decisions has become almost overly affluent - in terms of timeliness, scope and delivery. Intelligence is available everywhere and at any time, often through new modes of delivery, such as social media. This creates an interesting playground for technological innovation, while at the same time business leaders are questioning the whole process of decision making, planning and forecasting. While some see the need to gain more, and especially more timely information, others are adapting more entrepreneurial strategies in dealing with uncertainty. Yet others are innovating and rethinking how they approach financing and ultimately opportunity exploitation for example through Crowdsourcing and Crowdfunding. Such crowd based activities also heavily rely on information and intelligence, however often untested and un-audited - yet some call it the “wisdom of the crowd” and embrace these as a new paradigm and emancipation from traditional financial institutions like banks or venture capital firms.
The outlined interwoven and dynamic fields invite a multitude of scholarly perspectives, dealing with for example: efficiency in markets, time issues in planning and reporting, information dispersion and risk-perception, regulation and auditing, strategy building, behavioural finance and technological impact.
We welcome papers from a wide range of disciplines and corresponding research methodologies. We also encourage PhD. students to submit a paper for presentation.
Over the years, the perspective series became well respected and renowned for its diversity, and we will continue this tradition with full colours.
All accepted papers (proposals) may be published in Vol.13 of the Finance and Risk Perspectives, indexed in the SSRN and with an ISBN number. This is of course optional, as some authors will want to retain copyright.
In addition there will be additional opportunities through our partner journals from Routledge (ABS) at the venue, inviting some selected papers for publication.
Inspiring keynote speakers from Cambridge University, University of London and World Bank, workshops and panels on Crowdfunding and Social Finance, on Sustainability and Enterprise Risk Management, meet the editors and reviewers on publishing and research, as well as a great social side program will make this annual conference a rewarding journey to picturesque Cambridge.
Paper submission now closed.
