This eJournal is available to all subscribers at no charge and contains abstracts of the meeting papers with links to the full text in the SSRN eLibrary.


On Thursday, May 10, and Friday, May 11, 2018, the SEC, Center for Financial Services at Lehigh University, Center for Financial Policy at the Robert H. Smith School of Business, and CFA Institute jointly hosted the Fifth Annual Conference on Financial Market Regulation (CFMR) at the SEC Headquarters in Washington, DC.

The CFMR brought together participants from academia, industry, government, and the SEC for an exchange of views on topics of relevance to the Commission.

This year's presenters and discussants tackled interesting and insightful topics including crowdfunding, hedge fund liquidity management, ETFs, fragmented markets, SEC's comment letter process, investment advisor misconduct, and portfolio pumping, to name a few.

The CFMR lunch keynote address was given by Commissioner Robert Jackson. In addition, there was a SEC panel moderated by Commissioner Michael Piwowar who discussed areas of academic research that could contribute to fulfilling the SEC’s mission.

To view this year's presented papers, check out the Fifth CFMR eJournal, which is now available to all SSRN subscribers at no charge. The CFMR eJournal contains abstracts of the conference papers with links to the full text in the SSRN eLibrary.
