Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 10, 2015
Investment Management Consultants Association® (IMCA®) today introduced a new event to its 2015 conference slate: the IMCA 2015 Summer Institute, Powered by Yale University. The event takes place August 24–25 in Jersey City, New Jersey—across the river from Manhattan—and features Yale School of Management finance faculty sharing insight on relevant topics such as hedge fund strategies, behavioral finance, and factor-based investing. Speakers include:
- Nicholas C. Barberis, the Stephen and Camille Schramm Professor of Finance at the Yale School of Management. Professor Barberis’ research focuses on behavioral finance—in particular, on applications of cognitive psychology to understanding investor trading behavior and the pricing of financial assets.
- K. Geert Rouwenhorst, the Robert B. and Candice J. Haas Professor of Corporate Finance at the Yale School of Management and deputy director of the International Center for Finance. Professor Rouwenhorst specializes in empirical finance and asset pricing. His research interests include risk and return in international equity markets, commodity investments, and the history of financial innovation.
- Heather E. Tookes, professor of finance at the Yale School of Management. Professor Tookes’ research lies at the intersection of capital markets and corporate finance. Much of her work focuses on understanding the ways in which capital market frictions can impact market outcomes.
“Collaborating with top-tier business schools is the cornerstone of our education strategy, and we are excited that the Yale School of Management is headlining this special event,” said Ian MacKenzie, IMCA’s chief operating officer. “With an outstanding combination of location and high-caliber education, we anticipate a highly successful conference that will provide tremendous value to attendees.”

IMCA’s 2015 Annual Conference in Las Vegas hosted nearly 1,800 attendees April 26–29. In addition to live events, an online behavioral finance certificate program will roll out this fall.
