The Auckland Centre for Financial Research strives to achieve excellence in empirical finance and applied financial econometric research. We aim to do this by nurturing and developing world-class researchers, establishing relationships with leading academics and centers/institutes in the field, developing research capacity of postgraduate and PhD students, and engaging with industry.
The Centre focuses its activities in four main areas:
Frijns, B. and A. Tourani-Rad (2013). On the Performance of KiwiSaver Funds, Working Paper.
Frijns, B., A. Gilbert and A. Tourani-Rad (2012). Do criminal sanctions deter insider trading? Financial Review, forthcoming.
