Financial Economics concentrates on monetary activities such as the study of financial variables including prices, interest rates and shares, as well as risk and other variables related to financial decisions. Areas covered include banking and financial institutions, corporate finance, household finance and risk. The Financial Economics Network (FEN) helps promote new scholarship in finance and fosters interdisciplinary discovery in the area that intersects finance with accounting, economics, marketing, psychology and management. On FEN finance researchers can learn what the best minds in the field are presently working on. They will find the latest and cutting-edge research that may take years before it is published. This not only helps researchers decide what the contemporary thought-provoking questions are but also helps them decipher the openings in and possible extension to the extant literature.
