Institute of Finance

Welcome to the Institute of Finance at the University of Konstanz which is part of the department of economics. The institute is engaged in research in financial economics. Here, we are in particular investigating the information content of option prices. Further, we are investigating hedge funds and problems associated with optimal portfolio choice. We also teach in the economics program and the Masters in Finance of the University of Konstanz.
