Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Capital Asset Pricing Model is alive and well! Since its inception by Jack Treynor, William F. Sharpe, John Lintner, and Jan Mossin in the 1960s, it has fostered numerous extensions of Harry M. Markowitz’s modern portfolio theory. Last but not least, Merton Miller and Fischer Black famously contributed as well to its establishment as the foundational quantitative model in Securities’ risk management. Generations of researchers have been trained in its spirit, whilst Campbell, Lo and MacKinlay’s 1998 book on The Econometrics of Financial Markets has found its place on our bookshelves. As of 2020, the CAPM research field is highly active  with various innovations ranging from dynamic conditional beta estimates to high-frequency data inclusion. This call for papers from the Journal of Risk and Financial Management aims at gathering original research works, both from theory and practice, at the CAPM’s frontier of knowledge.
