The corporate bond market is the largest and deepest source of capital for companies. A well-functioning bond market is crucial to the stability of the overall financial market infrastructure. The workshop organizers invite authors to submit papers on issues related to corporate bond, its role as: a source of financing; a mitigating agent of agency costs; an active monitor of other stakeholders; a medium of high valuation as well as bankruptcy; an agent of tax sheltering; and an alternative to traditional lending. The call also encourages studies associated with the choice of the currency denomination of debt; impact of regulatory changes and technological innovation on corporate debt markets; market timing, trading environment in the secondary markets; influence of monetary policy on bond markets; private debt and real effects from a macro perspective and its overall importance to the stability of financial market infrastructure as well as the economy as a whole.
Keynote speaker: Kai Li (University of British Columbia)
Round table: with Joseph Fan (Chinese University of Hong Kong), Iftekhar Hasan (Fordham University) among others.
