Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
I am happy to announce that I am editing a Special Issue of JFRM on modern portfolio theory. Whilst papers of quality in the general area will be eligible, the particular themes within this topic will be assessing the role of asset price distributions on portfolio composition and the impact of behavioural concerns. Practitioner papers are especially welcome, although blatant advertising and self-aggrandisement are discouraged. Papers on stock selection or asset allocation are equally welcome, and I would like to see contributions on emerging market portfolio construction. The term “modern portfolio theory” is now rather venerable, so pieces addressing the history of the topic would also be of interest. I hope you will consider this an opportunity for making your work available to a wide audience and look forward to receiving your submissions.
Prof. Dr. Stephen Satchell
