Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Modern asset pricing models have been applied in both theoretical and practical contexts for pricing standard asset classes, encompassing stocks, bonds, foreign exchanges, derivatives, structured products, and securitizations. Throughout this application, the assessment of valuation risks has remained a pivotal consideration. However, as markets evolve and new asset classes such as cryptocurrency emerge, alongside alternative asset classes like art and non-standard asset classes, including deposits, loans, and banking franchises, the task of developing pricing models and addressing valuation risks becomes notably more complex and fascinating for researchers and practitioners.

We cordially invite you to submit your paper for publication in the Risks Special Issue, entitled “Valuation Risk and Asset Pricing”.

We welcome any new empirical or theoretical papers which focus on the pricing of non-traditional asset classes, including, but not limited to, deposits, loans, securitizations, personal finance, cryptocurrency, alternative asset classes, and associated valuation risk management issues.

The Risks Special Issue will utilize a double-blind peer review process. The initial review will be completed within four weeks, and clear guidance will also be provided for the first-round revision.
