The goal of the group is to foster theoretical research in the areas of corporate finance, financial institutions, and financial markets. We intend to hold two meetings every year, where participants meet to present and discuss their work. Participants include researchers from leading institutions, who finished their PhD after 1995, and who work primarily on the theory of corporate finance, financial institutions, and financial markets.
The group was founded by Itay Goldstein and Gustavo Manso in the fall of 2009, when they organized the first meeting at MIT. Since then, the organization of meetings is rotated among members of the group, such that each meeting is organized by two different members. Participation is by invitation only.
