EFD 2023 will be held on Friday December 15 at Kedge Business School’s Paris premises near Bercy (40 avenue des Terroirs). Like last year, they will have a professional section in the morning and an academic section in the afternoon, both of which will encourage dialogue between researchers and practitioners.
After a keynote address by one of the presidents of the associations supporting the event, the morning session will comprise three one-hour round tables. Each round table will be introduced by an academic expert who will review the current state of knowledge on this year’s topic. Two or three professional experts will then take part in a recorded debate. As last year, the round tables will focus on topics chosen in consultation with the trade associations in the following areas: corporate, markets and investors.
The corporate round table will deal with extra-financial reporting, its content, international differences and the standards currently under discussion. The market round table will look at how individuals perceive financial and non-financial issues, and the associated behavior of individual investors, on the stock market or in terms of savings, particularly employee savings. The investor round table will address climate impacts, their measurement and investment policy responses.
The morning session will close with the presentation of awards from several professional associations, including Af2i and Amafi, as well as the prize for the best paper submitted to the conference.
The afternoon session will be introduced by Sébastien Pouget of the Toulouse School of Economics, and will continue with parallel sessions presenting the work of researchers responding to the call for papers on sustainable finance themes selected by the event’s scientific committee. A special issue of the scientific journal Bankers Markets and Investors will be dedicated to the conference.
