Welcome to the website of the Chair of Finance at the University of Duisburg-Essen.
We deal with empirical capital market research, behavioral finance, experimental finance and asset management.
Within a "Bottom-up" approach we try to draw a detailed and realistic picture of the behaviour of participants in capital markets aiming to derive implications from their behaviour. On the other hand, our "Top-down" approach aims to explain patterns in market parameters that are difficult to reconcile with standard models. In this respect, we examine both the micro level and the macro level.
