2017-18 Research Award Recipients

Oksana Kim, PhD, FCCA

Dr. Kim will pursue a study examining changes in investor perception of the Russian public firms engaged in the energy sector (oil and gas, coal, precious metals, etc.), as a result of implementation of corporate governance reforms. Particularly, the study will assess the impact of the corporate and social responsibility metrics (board of directors and audit committee attributes, social and environmental responsibility) disclosed in quarterly and annual reports on firm value. The study will also provide insight into the overall benefits of the aforementioned reporting innovations, pioneered in the Western markets and more recently adopted within emerging markets, to the entire Russian economy.  

 

Puneet Jaiprakash, Ph.D.

Fund managers have a fiduciary responsibility to act in the best interest of investors; however, several factors might cause them to pursue their own interests. For example, they might pursue risky strategies that benefit them but hurt fund investors. The existing literature assumes fund investors to be a homogenous group that is naïve. Unfortunately, this is not a realistic assumption since institutional investors such as pension funds and sponsors of retirement plans such as 401(k) are very sophisticated. Motivated by this evidence, Dr. Jaiprakash will examine whether the above conflicts of interest vary with the fund’s investor clientele.  

 

2016-2017 Research Award Recipients will present at the event include:

Leon Chen, Ph.D.
Oksana Kim, Ph.D., ACCA
Christine Brown Mahoney, Ph.D.
Byron Pike, Ph.D., CPA
