Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue focuses on recent developments in the broad area of investment and risk management, in the context of emerging markets during the current pandemic. Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in early 2020, this unprecedented pandemic has been wreaking havoc on humankind. No one is safe from COVID-19, and its profound impacts can be felt clearly in societies and economies around the world. In particular, emerging markets are arguably much more vulnerable than developed countries for many reasons, such as the low incomes of the population, insufficient social safety nets, and limited capacity for monetary and fiscal policies, among others. As a result, all sectors in developing countries must face even greater adversity, and financial markets are not an exception. For researchers, practitioners, and regulators alike, it is of significant importance and interest to gain deep insights into how investment and risk management have been performing, adapting and evolving in economies hit really hard by COVID-19. Such valuable understanding will effectively inform future decisions around the ongoing pandemic and other potential catastrophes. In the setting of emerging markets during COVID-19, suitable topics include (but are not limited to) the following: 

  • Development of innovative trading strategies in active portfolio management;
  • Advanced portfolio optimisation models applicable to different asset classes to enhance portfolio performance;
  • Application of financial analysis and modelling approaches to examine the impacts of policies and regulations on financial performance;
  • Risk management of organisations in various industries;
  • Role of artificial intelligence (AI) and big data in investment and risk management;
  • Performance of AI/machine-learning-based investment strategies;
  • Shifts in inflation expectations and their implications for investment and risk management.

We encourage quantitative and empirical studies based on novel and/or established approaches. We hope you find this Special Issue an appropriate outlet for your work and look forward to your submissions.
