The FASRI Roundtable series continues at 4pm eastern time on Tuesday, October 11. Our guest speaker will be Doron Nissim, from Columbia University. Doron received his Ph.D. from UC Berkeley in 1998 and has since published extensively in top-tier journals, including manuscripts that are related to the valuation of financial instruments, which is the topic of this week’s Roundtable discussion. Hal Schroeder, a FASB Board Member, provided some interesting views last week on the current FASB/IASB deliberations on financial instruments. Doron will follow up on that discussion with some updated empirical evidence on loan-loss reserves and discuss implications of the proposed approach. The discussion should provide interesting perspectives, and generate new research ideas for the attendees.
Even if you were unable to attend Hal’s session last week, please plan to join us for the upcoming Roundtable with Doron.
