Special Issue "Corporate Debt"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2019).
Interests: corporate debt market structure; liquidity; market efficiency; credit rating
Over the last decade, market structure changes, regulatory reforms, and technological advances have had substantial impact on corporate bond markets and their liquidity. Market participants, including issuers, intermediaries and investors, are evolving their business models to adapt to changes in market conditions. Regulators are seeking to improve the structure of corporate bond markets to effectively serve the needs of market participants. While a growing body of research has helped our understanding of this historically opaque market, many questions remain open. The aim of this Special Issue is to present latest theoretical and empirical advances in research to stimulate and foster discussions on corporate debt. General topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Credit risk models
- Corporate bond liquidity and market quality
- Financial crisis, post-crisis regulation and systemic risk
- Debt financing and capital structure decisions
- Institutional holdings and trading activities
- Market liquidity and funding liquidity
- Trading networks
- Credit ratings
