Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Financial derivatives are increasingly important credentials in a globalized modern economy, significantly shaped today by the COVID-19 outbreak. Companies’ risk exposure has reached extremely high levels, and managers are facing volatile situations of financial distress, digital challenges, stock market instability and financial losses. Derivative products are effective instruments that firms can use to mitigate financial risks and that are no longer nationwide but global and widely complicated. However, the debate is still open on whether derivatives are inherently detrimental financial instruments leading to companies’ financial failures or a positive innovation for risk management in global financial markets. This Special Issue addresses several important topics related to risk management and financial derivatives, and enhances advanced instruments and methods for optimal portfolio management using financial derivatives, to countervail the uncertainties of risk exposure. It welcomes submissions that represent original, high-quality theoretical and empirical research, as well as policy-oriented research papers, that confer clear-cut findings to strengthen the knowledge in this scientific field. Empirical articles on optimal portfolio management, by applying financial derivatives, for various types of companies and groups of countries are particularly encouraged.

(1) Background: This paper aims to investigate whether the derivatives usage by the banking sector in the European Union has impacted its market valuation in the aftermath of the financial crisis. (2) Methods: Our analysis takes 120 European financial institutions listed on the European Union stock exchange over a period of 14 years into account (2008–2021). We use the generalized method of moments (GMM) to assess whether the use of derivatives allows financial intermediaries to increase their market value. Control variables, such as size, profitability, expectations of the market, bank risk, liquidity performance, and financial condition, are also taken into consideration. (3) Results: Our main findings suggest that market value is affected negatively by derivative asset accumulation. (4) Conclusions: The results are in line with the studies that investigated the impact of financial derivatives on the market value and found a negative connection between the two, justified by the suboptimal hedging or the higher volatility of the earnings.
