Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In her recent speech at the University of Maryland, on 4 February 2016, Christine Lagarde, the Managing Director of International Monetary Fund, pointed out the increasing importance of emerging markets countries as a locomotive of the global growth (80% since the global financial crisis of 2008), job creations, poverty reduction and international trade activities. Together with other developing economies, they now contribute up to 60% of global GDP. However, emerging markets are still found to be vulnerable to external shocks, essentially due to their ongoing maturing institutions and increased financial tights with their developed counterparts. High exposure to decreases in capital outflows following a more-rapid-than-expected tightening of the US monetary policy is another reason that could challenge economic growth and financial development of emerging markets.

This Special Issue will dedicate special attention to the current dynamics of emerging financial markets, as well as their perspectives of development as a key driver for sustainable firms and economies. Accordingly, the focus is particularly placed on market integration and interdependence, valuations and risk management practices, and the financing means for inclusive growth.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Financial markets and efficiency
  • Asset pricing models
  • Sustainable finance
  • Cost of capital in emerging markets
  • Determinants of saving and investment
  • Capital flows
  • Exchange rate volatility
  • Sovereign risks
  • Policy uncertainty and financial risk
  • Stock market co-movement and contagion
  • Cross-border investments
