Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The journal Risks invites submissions to a Special Issue dedicated to exploring the intricate relationship between the valuation of financial assets and the risk exposure to major events. The events include, but are not limited to, economic and financial crises, viral pandemics, natural disasters, climate changes, and geopolitical conflicts. The policies and measures that governments will implement during these challenging times also have profound impacts on asset pricing and investor behaviour. This Special Issue aims to collate innovative research that advances our understanding of the risk exposure implications of adverse events, how such various risk factors influence asset pricing and market volatility, and ultimately how the efficiency of capital allocation can be enhanced. We encourage submissions in the form of theoretical, empirical, and/or methodological studies on the various aspects of risk factors, asset pricing models, mis-valuations, behavioural finance, portfolio decisions, and risk management. Contributions that have important policy and practical implications for managing event risk and optimal asset allocation are of particular interest.
