Global Investment Research Network

Global Investment Preprints

Investing involves the outlay of capital, in the form of time, effort, money, or an asset, in anticipation of building wealth or income over time. The Global Investment Research Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in our digital library, speeding up the dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers and early-stage research. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preprints, preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters among others. SSRN also helps investment scholars and practitioners discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest, while providing a platform for the early sharing of their own work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.

Global investment is a broad field, encompassing various areas within finance including alternative asset investments, commodities, global equities, portfolio management, global currencies, and distressed assets among others. While distinctive, global investment interacts and overlaps with other areas of scholarship on SSRN including financial planning, financial economics, corporate governance, sustainability, accounting, health economics, innovation, entrepreneurship, education, decision science, and management. This intersection will help investment scholars and practitioners uncover new opportunities, develop new investment strategies, and create new techniques that will improve investment performance in a sustainable fashion.
