26th Australasian Finance & Banking Conference 2013 Logo

The Australasian Finance and Banking Conference is an annual event organized by the Institute of Global Finance and the School of Banking and Finance at the Australian School of Business, (UNSW). The event aims to promote discussion and interaction among researchers, academics, and practitioners interested in finance and banking fields, and draws a large crowd of both international and Australian participants to Sydney every December. The conference runs over three days and includes plenary sessions with distinguished keynote speakers, break-out sessions, social events, a Business Forum with participation of eminent business leaders and policy makers, a one day Phd Forum that attracts papers for presentations from amongst the best business schools around the world, and other initiatives such as the Networking Women in Finance session that discusses gender initiatives in the field. There are a number of prizes for best papers in different fields associated with this conference, including a BlackRock prize of $10,000 for the best paper in Mutual Funds and/or Capital Markets. This eJournal provides a data warehouse for all abstracts and papers presented at the Annual Conference. Abstracts of the papers will also be distributed in subject-specific eJournals within FEN and, where appropriate, in the eJournals of our sister networks.
